     Conversely, I see just the opposite behavior (on an i386 machine) -- if
r128.o is loaded before or without agpgart.o, hardware accel hangs the
machine.  When agpgart is loaded before r128, r128 prints some extra
agp-related stuff to the console when it initializes -- and then hw accel
works for me.
