Hi

How did you find your kernel?

It's not under /usr/src in Mandrake 10.1 and I'm not keen to re-install...

Build 2.6.8.1 is the "stock" kernel that comes with ManDrake 10.1 You can view it, where you DL

's your Mandrake, or do a kernelversion command, and it will tell you what version you are running.

Is the AGPGART module loaded in your X86Config-4 file???

When I used Mandrake, I never had to load it except through the config...

No its not. That is what I am trying to figure out, So that I can get the module loaded, and running. ATI doesnt make a Linux driver that is compatible for LInux, with their 9200 series video card, and without the agp module I am limited on the graphics that I am needing to do

Usually AGPGART is installed as a kernel MODULE, not right into the kernel...

Is your copy the purchased distro or Community???
