"agpgart" is a kernel driver. The i810 driver requires agpgart
kernel support in order to function properly. If agpgart is
unavailable for any reason, the i810 driver will refuse to start.
I've seen other similar reports for RHEL3 update kernels from other
i810 users as well. Reassigning to the kernel component for
agpgart issue investigation.
A fix for this problem was committed to the RHEL3 U4
patch pool on Monday (in kernel version 2.4.21-22.EL).
