When compiling the kernel for these CPUs, completely remove support for the in-kernel driver as shown: ) causes intermittent problems with the initialization of the NVIDIA drivers.There is no known alternative framebuffer for (U)EFI systems.

For open source drivers, especially those distributed with the kernel, these changes are nearly trivial to fix since the entire chain of calls between drivers and other parts of the kernel can be reviewed quite easily.The kernel module () consists of a proprietary part (commonly known as the "binary blob") which drives the graphics chip(s), and an open source part (the "glue") which at runtime acts as intermediary between the proprietary part and the kernel.These all need to work nicely together as otherwise the user might be faced with data loss (through kernel panics, X servers crashing with unsaved data in X applications) and even hardware failure (overheating and other power management related issues should spring to mind).If the in-kernel agpgart module is not used, then the drivers will use its own agpgart implementation, called Nv AGP.On certain systems, this performs better than the in-kernel agpgart, and on others, it performs worse.
