View Full Version : [ubuntu] nvidia agp fast writes in hardy heron

April 23rd, 2008, 12:39 AM
Does anyone know how to enable agp fast writes and side band addressing for nvidia in hardy herron? The old method of adding

options nvidia NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1

to /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-kernel-nkc doesn't seem to work anymore. I have tried changing nvidia to nvidia-new or nvidia_new to no avail as well.

For some reason the contents of the file /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-kernel-nkc are ignored entirely. I am able to manually modprobe the nvidia module with these options, but how can I make it take effect at startup?
