Description Bastien Nocera 2006-01-11 06:24:05 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:
config AGP_INTEL
       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

This issue is on Red Hat Engineering's list of planned work items 
for the upcoming Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.4 release.  Engineering 
resources have been assigned and barring unforeseen circumstances, Red 
Hat intends to include this item in the 4.4 release.
