Did you compile your kernel yourself or are you using the default 2.4.29 kernel? It sounds like your kernel isn't configured for the VIA chip.

Have you configured X? AFAIK aperture size is set in the bios... But I could be wrong . Anyway, if you've configured X, you should've set the amount of memory your graphics card has.** Registered Linux User # 393717 and proud of it ** Check out www.zenwalk.org

i know apeture size is set in the bios because i set it when i was working on performance tuning my vid card. but configuring X really doesnt come into play with the AGPGart not starting which i have read is due to KT600 chipset however i havent well until this thread why that was.
