i830m not detected by agpgart module


I've finally started trying to get my i830m in a Dell Latitude
C400 to display more than 256 colours at 1024x768. Currently I'm
using fbdev which is working fine.

When I tried to run XFree86 (version 4.2.0) configured to use
the "i810" driver I was told to make sure /dev/agpgart was
available. So I compiled the "agpgart" module (did that with
both a 2.4.18 and a 2.4.19 kernel) with "Intel ... /I830M/ ...
support" and "Intel .../I830M (on-board) support" turned on.

However, when trying to load the module, I am told via syslog:

Aug 22 19:49:16 lilith kernel: Linux agpgart interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
Aug 22 19:49:16 lilith kernel: agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 438M
Aug 22 19:49:16 lilith kernel: agpgart: no supported devices found.

Any idea what might be missing?

TIA, Marcus
