well have you filed a bug about the linux one being slower? (I find it hard
to imagine an agp driver being slower other than initial hw setup, which for
sure can be fixed). Do provide details about the exact hw you have (eg which
agp chipset etc etc).

... except for the oopses you get. That's obviously a very bad sign, and a
general indication that there is a bug in the binary one you use.

why do you use an open source operating system if you can use a binary only
one from other vendors ? ;)

realistically agp drivers in linux have to be inside the kernel for correct
operation in several circumstances (eg the resource management of the kernel
depends on knowing where "stuff" is, and the AGP aparture is one of the
resources that needs to be known there)
