Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 177509
No i915 DRM module
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:22 EST
kernel 2.6.9-27.EL doesn't include the i915 DRM support because no Intel AGP
support is compiled on x86-64.
$ rpm -qpl kernel-2.6.9-27.EL.i686.rpm | grep drm
$ rpm -qpl kernel-2.6.9-27.EL.x86_64.rpm | grep drm
The depends look broken in drivers/char/agp/Kconfig:
tristate "Intel 440LX/BX/GX, I8xx and E7x05 chipset support"
depends on AGP && X86 && !X86_64
tristate "Intel i865 chipset support"
depends on AGP && X86
