Description of problem:

NForce-2: in /var/log/messages the usual message

           is missing and the X-Server complains about missing agpgart.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

AGP not configured, X-Server can not use DRI => applications like 
googleearth are dog-slow ...

Additional info:

re-compiling the kernel with the shipped kernel-2.6.18-i686.config
fixes the problem.

Please attach the output of dmesg after booting the FC6 kernel.
Also the /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Today I installed FC6 on another machine, which has pretty much the same HW:
same MoBo, same CPU, same Memory, but different HD and graphics: the first where
the error occured has a Radeon 9200 graphics card. The machine I installed today
has a Matrox G550 graphics card. Strange enough on the second machine everything 
worked correct right out of the box:
agpgart: Found an AGP 2.0 compliant device at 0000:00:00.0.
agpgart: Putting AGP V2 device at 0000:00:00.0 into 1x mode
This is very confusing.

Comment 6 e.mergl 2006-10-31 15:57:31 EST
by the way: the MoBo is an Asus A7N8X-E Deluxe.
BIOS settings of both machines are identical.

ah, I think this is the 'installer installs a 586 kernel by default' bug.
See ..


Let me know if it works when you install a 686 kernel.
