    agppart module..

    i use knoppix3.3 ..after booting ..when it stats Starting gives following error:
    Starting X11 [drm:drm_init] *ERROR * Cannot initialize the agppart module
    /lib/modules/2.4.24-xfs/kernel/drivers/char/drm/i810.o: init_modules: Cannot allocate memory.
    Hint: insmod erroe=rs can be caused by incorrect modules parameters.
    You may find more info. In syslog or the output from dmesg.
    /lib/modules/2.4.24-xfs/kernel/drivers/char/drm/i810.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.24-xfs/kernel/drivers/char/drm/i810.o: failed.

    wht is mean by this & why this error occured?
    though X server starts after that & everything works fine.

    I also was getting this error with knoppix 3.3 & with 3.4 using the 2.4 kernel (also i810 vid card). Switching to 3.4 / 2.6 kernel fixed it.
    Agpgart has to do with video card acceleration, I could not use graphics-intensive applications like tuxracer until it was working.

    IIRC I had the same memory problem with Knoppix 3.3 and i810, and solved it by adding a line for more video memory in /etc/X11/XF86config-4 :
    Section "Device"
            ### Available Driver options are:-
    # sw_cursor is needed for some ati and radeon cards
            #Option     "sw_cursor"
            #Option     "hw_cursor"
            #Option     "NoAccel"
            #Option     "ShowCache"
            #Option     "ShadowFB"
            #Option     "UseFBDev"
            #Option     "Rotate"
            Identifier  "Card0"
    # The following line is auto-generated by KNOPPIX mkxf86config
            Driver      "i810"
            VendorName  "All"
            BoardName   "All"
    #       BusID       "PCI:1:0:0"
            VideoRam    16384

    I have also added video memory but still the agpgart module will not initialize unless I use the 2.6 kernel.

    Hmm, makes me wish I'd remember what I did to make tuxracer run on 3.3. Wasn't there 3 different i810 display adapters to choose from, but only one worked (after adding memory). Easier to try a newer version of knoppix though.
