Re: AGP?

I'm pretty sure I my video card is AGP.
When I zapped the old one, I had to look hard to find an AGP card.
The old one has "AGP1" printed on it.
As I have several windows open, my system (FC11) can't be too confused.
Some NVIDIA onboard graphics chipsets use AGP, as well as expansion
cards that fit in an AGP slot. To check whether your onboard chipset is
an AGP one, run this command:

grep -i agp /var/log/Xorg.0.log

if it returns anything, your chip is an AGP one. If not, it isn't.

grep -i agp /var/log/Xorg.0.log
does not return anything.

^^^^ PCI ID?

What is going on?

In case it helps, my xorg.conf:
# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "on"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "vesa"

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"

http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_18897.html lists GeForce FX 5200LE 0x0323
as "legacy".
Does that mean I shouldn't even try for 3D acceleration?

Use the Nvidia 173.14.22 series drivers for your FX 5200. 3D won't be spectacular, but it will be useable.
