Re: PCI on AGP
OK, now I see if I should have CAP_PTR for 440BX.
I've never think about targetting AGP only.
But does it mean any other AGP(ie 840) don't require having the pointer?
If so, I'd switch to AGP with no AGP function because I will have
to fight with the strict timing requirement soon.
Thank you for your very helpful information.
