i'm trying to use the Nvidia AGP driver instead of Agpgart. i've added:
...to my xorg.conf. However, in order to get it to work i need to do the following:
...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?
rmmod via_agp nvidia
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.
