On T500 with 2.6.32.1 agpgart sometimes fails to initialize which results in displaying errors:

Comment 1 Rafael J. Wysocki 2010-01-13 22:08:22 UTC
I suppose it didn't happen with 2.6.31.x?
Comment 2 uzytkownik2@gmail.com 2010-01-13 22:14:56 UTC
I don't remember any problems with 2.6.31 or 2.6.32. However it happend only twice so it's rather rare (however it does happen).

X11 starts in such case but have artifacts on gdm and gnome+gnome-shell does not want to start.
Comment 3 zhenyuw 2010-01-25 01:26:55 UTC
So from the kernel timing, the failure case is that drm/i915 loads before agp/intel? which will be sure to be broken...
Comment 4 Cyril Brulebois 2010-02-22 20:00:55 UTC
Still valid in 2.6.32.8 (as patched in Debian source package linux-2.6/2.6.32-8); different but similar trace (drm/i915 loads before agp/intel, although init messages are interleaved somehow):

force intel agp dependence for i915

Could you test if this patch works for you?
Comment 6 uzytkownik2@gmail.com 2010-02-24 11:51:29 UTC
Ok. I didn't reproduce problem on 2.6.32 (although others did) but I just installed the pached kernel.
Comment 7 Florian Mickler 2010-10-26 09:35:13 UTC
Said commit is upstream as:

commit 1f7a6e372e9cb4d749f34c0738d832e6cadb4071
Author: Zhenyu Wang <zhenyuw@linux.intel.com>
Date:   Tue Feb 23 14:05:24 2010 +0800

    drm/i915: Add dependency on the intel agp module

Please reopen if this did not fix your issue.

Is this patch needed for 2.6.32.y? I don't see it there.
