Description Paul Sery 2000-06-24 04:12:43 UTC
The graphical install system fails on my HP Pavilion 6635. The computer
uses an Intel 810 video card. The error message is:

...
Unable to load agpgart
...
Add screen/screen init failed

{the computer then reboots}

Beta2 installs on the same computer when the text mode is used.

You will need to install using the text mode installer, then apply the kernel
errata for 6.2 which fixes this.
