using the ports tarball from I
have installed Xorg 7.2 on a fresh system. The system has the above
mentioned onboard video chip. I have been playing around with the
'i810' and the 'intel'(not in ports) driver.  I keep seeing this:

(EE) GARTInit: Unable to open /dev/agpgart (No such file or directory)
(WW) intel(0): /dev/agpgart is either not available, or no memory is available

I do have agp compiled into my kernel. I don't have an agp bus on the
board. I am not sure why the driver is looking for one.
