    agp support for 2.4 kernel problem in dmesg


    Hi all,

    I am making a small kernel for a new target computer. I am starting to build the X Windows.

    I use kernel 2.4.32, and in the kernel configuration under "Character Devices"->"Device Drivers", I already enable AGP support and select all the chip types.

    But here is the outcome:

    Code:
    # dmesg | grep agp
    <6>Linux agpgart: interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
    <6>agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 197M
    <3>agpgart: Unsupported Via chipset (device id: 0605), you might want to boot with agp=try_unsupported
    <7>agpgart: no supported device found
    
    # lspci | grep VGA
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: S3 Inc. VT8603 [ProSavage PN133] AGP4X VGA Controller (Twister) (rev 02)
    so i change the grub of boot parameter in my menu.lst file.
    and here is the new result:

    Code:
    # dmesg | grep agp
    <4>Kernel command line: rw root=/dev/hda1 vga=794 splash=silent agp=try_unsupported
    <6>Linux agpgart: interface v0.99 (c) Jeff Hartmann
    <6>agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory: 197M
    <4>agpgart: Trying generic Via routines for device id : 0605
    <6>agpgart: AGP aperture is 64M @ 0xec000000
    So, is this ok? can i carry on with the X Windows installation?
    If it is not, should i look for a patch for the kernel? and where i can find it? cause i tried to google it but found nothing.

    thanks,

    It seems to be fine. No errors are showed in the system log.

    Best Regards
