AGP Graphics cards not showing up in lspci - cannot load fglrx
I had this computer working perfectly, just as it would normally be expected to work. I then changed a significant amount of the hardware (9800pro->9000, added two tv cards and hard drive changed) but compiled a kernel specifically for this effort.
On boot I had a few minor problems like forgetting to change the fstab and needing to reinstall modules. At this point things first started being strange as I managed to clear up most problems with little trouble. However the fglrx module failed to load "No such device." I was unable to tell why this was apart from lspci not reporting any instance of a VGA controller i.e. lspci|grep VGA would output nothing. I found this rather strange considering I am able to see things on the screen.
After changing many things, gradually removing most of the hardware, and eventually going back to the old configuration, I was still in exactly the same position, this time on the other graphics card (9800pro) and hard drive. I am now completely bemused and google is unable to help me.
Please offer any hints, even the most ridiculous thoughts you might have, because I have *no* idea what might be causing this.
