[vox-tech] Re: running X with Intel 82810

From the "README.i810" file for the xserver-xfree86 package:

   o This driver currently only works for Linux/ix86 and recent
   versions of FreeBSD.  It requires the _agpgart_ kernel support,
   which is included in Linux kernels 2.3.42 and higher, and FreeBSD 4.1
   and higher.

Looks like you'll need the 2.4 kernel.

Also, post your /var/log/XFree86.0.log next time too.  That'll give us
a good idea of what's really going wrong with the X Server, or at the
very least, point us in the right direction.

Good luck.
