modprobe agpgart not working

I have one of the "unsuppported via chipsets" regarding agpgart, and i get the message "try agp_try_unsupported=1".

So i googled for this, and i found that this is a modprobe argument as follows:

[root@archcrow crow]# modprobe agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1
modprobe: Can't locate module agpgart
[root@archcrow crow]# 

But as you see, its not working, though i built support for it in the kernel (its a custum 2.4.23)...


I had this "unsupported" message since... ever, so its not an actual kernel problem, the actual problem might be the module agpgart...

any tips are welcome!
thanks in advance.

Re: modprobe agpgart not working

If you've compiled the agpgart module into the kernel (like it is with the default arch kernel) then you'll have real trouble loading it as a module too ;o)

In that case you want to just pass agp_try_unsupported=1 in your lilo.conf or menu.lst at bootup.

I was thinking about that yesterday, altough i couldnt make any changes due to time problems, thanks for confirming it  big_smile

I will try with lilo.conf, thanks for the tip.

Re: modprobe agpgart not working

Ok, ive been busy lately, and i could try the LILO thing yesterday, i cant get lilo to recognize the option... where should i place it ??

On the good side, the 2.6 kernel agpgart is working without any "tweaks".

Thanks.

Re: modprobe agpgart not working

To pass other arguments to the kernel with lilo you have to specify the 'append' option.  So:

append="agp_try_unsupported=1"
