Description Mauricio Gomes 2006-10-25 00:18:44 EDT
Description of problem:
When booting, agpgart complains that it has detected an unsupported ALi chipset and as the system 
attempts to go into a graphical boot it fails.  It then stops booting after "Enabling /etc/fstab swaps" 
spitting out a kernel error: "kobject_add failed for vcs1 with -EEXIST, don't try to register things with 
the same name in the same directory."

I have a Radeon x1600 agp video card and a GIGABYTE GA-K8U Socket 754 ULi M1689 ATX AMD 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Stock FC6 kernel and FC6xen

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC6 on aforementioned hardware.
2. Attempt to boot into the installed system.
Actual results:
Kernel error and failed boot.

Expected results:
Successfully boot into FC6 and enjoy the goodness.

Additional info:
The installation was fresh and went without a hitch.  I did an http install off of a boot.iso mini-image.
Comment 1 Dave Jones 2006-10-31 17:35:53 EST
I saw this once quite a while ago, and couldn't figure out what triggered it. Is
this reproducable every time you boot ?
Comment 2 Mauricio Gomes 2006-10-31 18:33:47 EST
Yes, this is reproducible with every reboot after the initial install.  I have
also attempted to install FC6 via dvd as an attempt to narrow things down more
with the same result.  

I've run FC5 on this system with no problems in the past.
Comment 3 Mauricio Gomes 2007-02-28 00:16:37 EST
I tried Fedora Unity's respin of fc6, no luck.
