In my case is even worse, now that you bring the issue to some light:

boo:~# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by    Not tainted
agpgart                20100   0  (unused)

and from the log:

(EE) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP not available
(WW) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP failed to initialize -- falling back to PCI mode.
(WW) RADEON(0): [agp] Make sure you have the agpgart kernel module loaded.

So I am missing something, here.

Can you post your config file, so I can take a look at it?
