buggy Trident CyberBlade Ai1 driver?
My Toshiba laptop has a Trident CyberBlade Ai1 onboard AGP video card with 16 MB SDRAM. I, however, cannot get "/sbin/modprobe agpgart" to work. The errors make it sound like a resource issue;
"/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: Can't locate module 2"
I checked with a "find / -name *agpgart*" and determined that the module is there in /lib/modules/yada...
I can only assume that the generic Trident CyberBlade driver does not expose interfaces for the agpgart module to bind with, or laptop video cards are too proprietary.
I have made the agpgart module work on other systems, and the difference is really nice. No mouse-droppings, or annoying copies of the window as I drag it accross the desktop...
