Enabling Coolbits

Hi all.

I'm trying to enable Coolbits on my new NV6600GT AGP card.

But when I add: Option "Coolbits" "1"
to my: Section "Device" in xorg.conf I get no changes running nvidia-settings after restarting X.

This is not an native AGP card, but have an AGP bridge or something (an extra chip), could that have something to do with it?

I'm running all the latest from pacman, base, xorg, gnome, nvidia. Here is my complete xorg.conf if anyone can spot some errors.

Thanks.

Re: Enabling Coolbits

Are you using the latest version of nvidia-settings? nvidia-settings and your nVidia driver version must be the same, if I recall correctly.

Re: Enabling Coolbits

Hm, I think so.

I installed latest nvidia drivers from pacman and just run nvidia-settings.

Re: Enabling Coolbits

hi,

from what I know, the NV6600GT AGP is PCIe(xpress) card utilizing
a bridge chip fpr AGP.
So this might be the reason that the nvidia driver doesn't support that on
such cards.

Re: Enabling Coolbits

I was afraid it could be the PCIe to AGP brigde who was making the trouble :?.

Oh well, everything else under nvidia-settings works just fine and I guess maybe the next driver or some driver after that will correct this, I know this card will go from 450/900 to 550/1050 whit the default cooling just fine, but I can wait smile.

Thanks for the input ppl smile.
