Same here. I saw no amd64_agp module compiled in linux-image-2.6.17-10-generic.

I'm compiled kernel and ok again

Sorry. I'm in 32bits with AMD64, but the problem is same.

I'm using AMD 64 in Ubuntu Edgy Eft Knot 3 32 bits version here and getting sort of the same problem.

The diference is that I'm trying to use the open source drivers.

I'm using Ubuntu EGDY (up to date) in 32Bits and I have exactly the same problem. Hence, Graphic performance is worse than with Free ati drivers...

Please make sure you are running latest kernel, and attach (do no paste into comments) the output of dmesg.

Ok, here is my dmesg.

In fact, I think I have the same problem as here : #57716

I'll try to add the following to my xorg.conf as advised and see if it works:
Section "ServerFlags"
 Option "AIGLX" "off"

Section "Extensions"
 Option "Composite" "0"

I believe I've got the same problem.

fglrx is loaded, but there is no dri.
Turning off AIGLX works.

Affects 2.6.7-10-386

I had a "customer" on #ubuntu-xgl with the same problem, he did not have any modules in /lib/modules/2.6.17-10-generic/kernel/drivers/char/agp/ on an edgy amd64 machine. I mean he had some, but not the amd64 agpgart module.

Ben Collins (ben-collins) wrote :


That's because it is compiled into the kernel.

Support should exist.

9johnny (s.j.) wrote :

Well that's fine, but as you can see, Xorg can't see the support somehow. I wonder if there is any difference if it is as a module or compiled in, there shouldn't be. Maye the agp support is broken in the kernel?
