i have a Dell optiplex 270, with a Radeon 9200SE. The motherboard is based on the intel 865-chip, so the AGP-port uses intel_agp i presume.
when i let Arch autoload the modules it loads intel_agp anyway.
but when i wanna start X (xorg 7 from testing) my PC blocks: black screen, and i'm not able to go to another terminal. Booting into init 3 works without problems untill i start X
When i put intel_agp in the blocklist on the other hand, X works.
but i wanna get DRI working, and in /var/log/Xorg.0.log it says:
(WW) xf86OpenConsole: Could not save ownership of VT (WW) xf86OpenConsole: chown /dev/tty0 failed: No such file or directory (WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:1:0:1) found (WW) RADEON(0): Failed to detect secondary monitor, MergedFB/Clone mode disabled (WW) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP not available (EE) RADEON(0): [agp] AGP failed to initialize. Disabling the DRI. (WW) RADEON(0): Direct rendering disabled
so i assume it need that intel_agp module.
the cleaned out versions of my rc.conf, xorg.conf and lsmod are on
how comes this intel_agp module blocks my whole PC, and only when i start X?
