I'm using the 2.6.18-3-amd64 image on my machine. But unfortunately this kernel lacks 965 support in the agpgart / intel-agp module (see linux-source-2.6.18/drivers/char/agp/intel-agp.c).
I've got the same problem with the 946GZ on the 2.6.18-3 kernel also. I've read that 2.6.19 provides the updated driver but I've had other problems with the vanilla 2.6.19. I've been making do with the vesa driver.
Any suggestions how to get agpgart working with the popular 965 chipset in etch?

I think it's unlikely in time for Etch, but you could file a wishlist
bug for the linux-2.6 package and hope for the best.

Even better if you could supply a patch with your bug report of course.

There appears to be a patch available at http://www.webservertalk.com/message1610447.html that addresses the issue (??). I'm afraid I don't have the expertise to verify it or to implement it but I hope that support for these new chipsets does show up in Etch.
