I tried compiling agp support and the i810 DRI as modules for kernel v2.4.9.
X exits out with:
(II) I810(0): Buffer map : bfb000
(II) I810(0): [drm] added 256 4096 byte DMA buffers
I810 Dma Initialization Failed
When recompiling the v2.4.8 kernel with the same configuration, X
I wonder what the delta between the two is?
