    Nvidia AGP

    i'm trying to use the Nvidia AGP driver instead of Agpgart. i've added:

    Option "NvAgp" "1" my xorg.conf. However, in order to get it to work i need to do the following:

    rmmod via_agp nvidia
    rmmod agpgart
    ...and then restart X. i've tried adding the above entries to /etc/hotplug/blacklist but they're still loaded at bootup. Is there some other way to unload agpgart at startup?

    Remove hotplug?
    When using Windows, have you ever told "Ehi... do your business?"

    I know some kernels enable loading modules when thei're needed... In that case, I dont think hotplug is involved at all. About other ways of preventing the loading:

    1) I belive you can change this in /etc/modprobe.conf or /etc/modules.conf

    2) Make a rc-script, I belive in /etc/rc.d on slack, and make it automaticly execute. The script should be created to automaticly unload the modules.

    3) Roll your own kernel, don't compile agp support as either module _OR_ built-in.
