I snipped out part of your log and put '!' around the
warning that states your problem.  I had the exact
same problem; it's the VESA driver.  It will only

Are you running "Woody"?  If so an upgrade to 2.4.x
will get you a new driver that will fix it.  Otherwise
you will have to compile a native driver and get the
agpgart.o module loaded.  

All those things will be done automatically if you
upgrade, though.
