Unable to get the nVidia card running with AGP (Hours wasted...)

Trying to get the GL operations on the workstation to use AGP (i.e. to not be dog-slow). I can configure with either of the kernel AGP or the NVAGP from the nVidia driver (and the AGP seems to correctly initialise), but it always produces the same result, blank white screen with no interactivity I can detect. Anyway, too much time wasted on this, I don't actually need accellerated graphics for writing OpenGL-ctypes, I'd just prefer it.

    Hey Mike,<br />
    <br />
    There's lots of things that can cause weird nVidia issues. One thing you have to watch out for is that libGL.so shipped with nVidia's driver conflicts (or rather, replaces) one that comes with xorg, so sometimes just reinstalling the driver after an X upgrade can fix things.<br />
    <br />
    If that doesn't help, maybe you could pastebin your xorg.conf so some of us could take a look at it. Also, I'm assuming this is a laptop so the model would be helpful.<br />
