finally this worked for me.. I just had to put in nvidia-currentoptions nvidia-current NVreg_EnableAGPSBA=1 NVreg_EnableAGPFW=1
Ubuntu 10.10 Nvidia 260.19.06
None of the solutions worked for me.
AGP is enabled in BIOS , Initially I had PCI. (doh!!!!)
AGP is supported.
Fastwrite is supported. but NOT enabled
SBA is supported and enabled.
Hyperthreading is enabled in BIOS (this doubles the frame rate)
No option in BIOS for fast write.??
nivdia-current/_current or nvidia-new/_new both don't work. NOTE dash - and Underscore _ don't work.
Geforce FX5600 XT 128 MB's
Direct x 9.0 supported.
Any suggestions appreciated.
nvidia_173.14.22 didn't break anything, or fix.
I guess, fastwrite just isn't an option, even though its supported.
Leave well enough alone, I broke the graphics driver twice, once trying to install a beta driver, 2nd time to make sure I knew what I did.
Thanks for quick reply.
On Hyperthreading, disabling reduced frame rate by 1/2 so sematics. Looks like its just disabled by default for my Video card. Card is only supported by legacy updates.
Guide might be for lower setting Video cards??? (4 yr's old)
No big problem, still a great guide regardless.
That to me says that you've got no 3D driver installed (or it wasnt a 3D program), whatever you were using was light, and very CPU bound.
Ok, none of these options worked here. I am on ubuntu 13.04 nvidia driver 308.
I have several clients that still have agp nvidia cards. On previous versions of Ubuntu, these instructions worked.
Any help would be appreciated
