That's not a bug in X, me thinks.
I'm guessing, that you haven't loaded your chipset specific agp module,
which in your case would be 'intel-agp'
Starting with 2.6, there's a generic agpgart module, and several *-agp
modules for different AGP chips. YOu need to load both, before starting the
So it seems. Thanks!
But, this still leaves some problems:
- The error message is not correct for linux-2.6. It's giving a very
specific diagnosis of the problem that isn't correct under 2.6 (or
probably, under other kernels).
- The X configuarion program sets up agpgart to be loaded, but when I
rerun it it doesn't set up intel-agp to be loaded.
Also, now X will start but the mouse doesn't work. I have no idea why
this would be, and can't give any useful diagnostic information.
