Very helpful -- thanks. My desktop machine's video card died, so I
pulled a server out of the cupboard and (except for the noise -- my
desktop machine should be diskless!) am happy again.
For the benefit of other lurkers and the mail archives, here are the
steps I used to configure this.
0. (a) install agpgart.o in /usr/lkm
(b) copy XF86_SVGA.i180 to /usr/X11R6/bin and make it executable
(c) link /usr/X11R6/bin/X to /usr/X11R6/bin/F86_SVGA.i380
1. Set lkm=YES in /etc/rc.conf if it is not already, and add agpgart.o
agpgart.o - - /usr/local/sbin/mkdev_agpgart - AFTERMOUNT
After rebooting, this message shows in dmesg:
NetBSD AGP GART interface v0.03 (c) Jeff Hartmann
-- Experimental distribution, only i810 enabled
Got pages for a 64 megabyte mapping for the agp aperature.
2. Create a postinstall script to be called from modload via
/etc/lkm.conf to create /dev/agpgart. Until this is done starting
X will fail because /dev/agpgart doesn't exist:
(--) SVGA: Stat failed on /dev/agpgart: No such file or directory
Fatal server error:
couldn't get memory from gart module,
and I810_UNSUPPORTED_GTT_FALLBACK not set.
# Called by modload(8) after loading agpgart.o
rm -f /dev/agpgart
mknod /dev/agpgart c $3 0
