Does not work.
I have removed the agp in kernel(there is no drm in my kernel), set the
sysctl.conf and the xorg.conf. Recompiled and restarted my laptop.
Xorg still crashed when I selecting the OpenGL Screen Saver.
I can use sysctl -a, here is the result:
11:05pm kemian ~> sysctl -a |grep nvidia
hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module 173.14.12 Thu Jul 17
18:06:02 PDT 2008
hw.nvidia.cards.0.model: GeForce Go 6150
dev.nvidia.0.%desc: GeForce Go 6150
BTW, I have tried games/apoolGL, crashed as it started.
