disabling device detection/loading


Hello There!

Im having problems booting linux on a motherboard that has a onboard graphics chip. When i insert a AGP card (before and after installing linux, i've tried both) and set it as primary display card in the bios i get a kernel panic. I have no jumper settings to disable the onboard graphics card, and the bios only allows for device init priority. Booting without the AGP set as primary does work, but i then no longer see my boot screen and cannot console (the AGP is then set to screen 2 and i do not have 2 monitors)

The motherboard is a Asrock 775i65GV. I have searched the net for similiar problems with other users and came across other people that had exactly the same problem. none of them could solve the problem except for one, He turned to Gentoo. Im not to fond of Gentoo so im skipping that option. I have however tried other distributions.. mandriva, debian, fedora 6, suse 10.0, 10.1, 10.2, 10.3:factory.. all with the same problem, i cannot boot with my AGP as primary graphics card because boot ends up with a kernel panic and freezes.

so then my question: is there a way to disable a device in the kernel and tell the kernel to not detect it?

thanx in advance for your reply, i will much appreciate any ideas as i am at ends meet with the problem and am ready to smash my motherboard into trillions of small pieces and sue asrock for psychological injury to my psych.

greets from Wernher

What does the panic seem to be related to?

Is it related to agp?I know have I have gotten via rhine(networking) errors when I inserted a graphics card, so just because you inserted the graphics card, doesn't mean it is related to the GFX card.Try posting a little bit(if possible) of the error on here.

Hey there!

thanx for your reply.

What do you mean with 'rhine'.

I was using another motherboard with all the hardware i now have installed that had no onboard VGA. This system worked perfectly, unfortunately the motherboard blew, the prongs on the heatsink for my processor were damaged and not inserted correctly.

The problem is that i cannot seem to find the error in the logs. When im booting, the system just freezes. Before the error occurs though, i am able to capture a glimpse of a agpgart line (screen scrolls to fast). After i remove the agp card or set the bios prioritory vga selection to onboard and then reboot i can no longer find a recording of the error in the logfile. I see the last good boot messages and the current but the messages of when my PC froze mysteriously dissapear. Im gonne redo the error and i'll write a piece of the error message on paper and then post it here.



greets wernher

"rhine" is a networking chip. Sorry about that.

For opensuse 10.2

boot with the option init=/bin/bash

go to /etc/udev/rules

there will be file that starts with 80-

open that file in an editor and place # in front of the pci line.

you are done.


The easy way..
boot with the option init=/bin/bash
rename the file /etc/init.d/boot.udev to anything.

again, you are done.
