    Re:insmod agpgart

    may have found the answer...

    kernel 2.4 doesn't support the via kt400 chipset 'properly' and is supposed to cause all kinda quirkiness. suggested fix is to upgrade to 2.6 kernel...
    i'll let you know if this fixes my headaches.

    Re:insmod agpgart

    2.4 never fully supported the kt400, but I did get it working with mine a while back. That was in the 2.4.18 days, and the RH9 kernels seem to support it find, but anyways. The way I got around it was like this:

    modprobe agpgart agp_try_unsupported=1

    Hope that helps in any way possible.
