Freshly Installed Fedora Wont Boot-AGPGART...


Hi,
I'm somewhat new to linux and decided to try Fedora Core 6. After a seamless and flawless installation, i went to boot it up for the first time, as soon as i select Fedora, it takes me to a black screen which says:

AGPGART: unable to get memory for graphics translation table

What the heck does this mean? Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Specs:
Desktop
AMD Athlon 64 3200+
nVidia GeForce 6200 128mb AGP graphics card
1gb PC3200 ram
250 gb EIDE hdd partitioned for ~50gb for Fedora
Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 motherboard
(if you need anything else, please let me know)

Thanks Again!

You can try the following:

When the Grub splash screen is displayed press any key.
Select the Linux boot choice and press the 'e' key
Select the kernel line and press the 'e' key again
At the end of the line add a space followed by iommu=noagp
When done press the 'Enter' key followed by the 'b' key

If this works then you might want to find out if a BIOS re-set or upgrade is in order. Also search this site for nVidia graphics interfaces and FC6.
The HCL comes to mind, for both the nVidia and motherboard/system.

Arg, i couldnt get this one to work. Which one do i need to add it to? There are 3 different choices after i first press e.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks!
