AGP problem...

I having a problem getting my 9700 pro installed correctly. I am using the Fire GL X1 drivers (or atleast trying to use them), and using Redhat 9 (x 4.3.0).

installed the rpm by..

# init 1
# rpm -i --force
# cd /usr/X11R6/bin
# ./fglrxconfig

the rpm did give any errors (that I noticed anyway)

basically all I did to configure (did I leave out something?)

anyway, I tried to "startx" and received an error similiar to "(agp) Failed" or failed to reconize the card at apg.

Here is some pieces from the XFree86.0.log file.
Where cards were probed..
(--) PCI:*(3:0:0) ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R300 ND [Radeon 9700] rev 0, Mem @ 0xd8000000/27, 0xeb000000/16, I/O @ 0xb000/8
(--) PCI: (3:0:1) ATI Technologies Inc Radeon R300 [Radeon 9700 Pro] (Secondary) rev 0, Mem @ 0xe0000000/27, 0xeb010000/16
A warning..
(II) Primary Device is: PCI 03:00:0
(--) Assigning device section with no busID to primary device
(WW) RADEON: No matching Device section for instance (BusID PCI:3:0:1) found
(--) Chipset ATI Radeon 9700 Pro ND (AGP) found

So why is AGP failing?
Did I forget to configure something?
Does the 2.4.20-8 kernel need to be compiled differently (with agpgart or something?

Here is the Graphics section of my XF86Config-4

I am having the exact same problem... I found out that the current agpgart (v0.99) driver that comes with RedHat 9 (including the kernel update to 2.4.20-9) does not support agp8x & the new KT400 chipset correctly. I found this information from this post. Where we go from here I am not so sure but at least more light is being shed on the problem. I will keep working at it and post anything I find, please do so your self if possible .

Update: I , made a post in the hardware section of these forums, maybe we can get some help their as well.
