This is a report about a known problem with the current kernel and ASUS P5B motherboards with Intel 965G chipset. It didn't happen in version 2.0, but now that I installed 2.1, my new system couldn't finish the booting process, freezing dead once the message appear: agpgart: Detected an Intel 965G Chipset Enough to mention, that ASUS P5B does NOT have ANY gpaphics chipset to it, nor any AGP at all -- uses PCI-E instead! Googling shows this to be a bug in the intel_agp.ko module, which starts looking for AGP where it is not. So, if anybody has it, you can do what I did: vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist add the following line: blacklist intel_agp and exit vi editor. Next reboot goes just fine, unless you have problems with your video card, he-he. The kernel developers are fixing it now, as I can guess from the mailing lists. Cheers, bergerkos

Thank you!

That did the trick! I got this error after a fresh install of 2.1 :[ My mobo is a Gigabyte 965P-DS3 which is also PCI-e not AGP
