Recently, I tried to install my laptop from scratch on Puppy 2.14 using the notes from 2.13. One of the steps involve installing the Nividia driver. However, when I attempted to startx, I got the following error in dmesg:

nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_bind_memory
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_enable
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_backend_acquire
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_free_memory
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_allocate_memory
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_unbind_memory
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_copy_info
nvidia: Unknown symbol agp_backend_release

Any idea what this mean?

Before you installnvidia, load the agpgart module by:

modprobe agpgart

Once the module is loaded, the unknown symbols messages go away.
