Bug#432051: xserver-xorg-video-i810: fails to start on a mobo with a Intel Corporation G965 Integrated Graphics and 8MB of videoram



Some i965 are only supported in the upcoming 2.6.22. Although your i965
should be supported for a long time from what I see in the kernel
changelog, maybe some fixes of 2.6.22 are required.

You should check what dmesg says when you load the intel_agp kernel
module. It is the one that should make /dev/agpgart appear and solve the
following error:

 (EE) GARTInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such file or directory)
 (WW) intel(0): /dev/agpgart is either not available, or no memory is available
 for allocation.  Using pre-allocated memory only.


Looking at dmesg while i915 and drm modules might also show whether DRI
will work with this kernel.

If you don't want to compile a 2.6.22 kernel (actually, a 2.6.22-rc7,
which is pretty close to the upcoming final 2.6.22), use the following
in your /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://kernel-archive.buildserver.net/debian-kernel trunk main

or just take a kernel package from

    http://kernel-archive.buildserver.net/debian-kernel/pool/main/l/linux-2.6/
