Bug Description

Building the AGP modules into the i386 kernel as static drivers causes ATI graphics to fail. I have vague memories of this happening in the Feisty time frame, but cannot find a related bug.

Having the same issue with CONFIG_DRM=y on amd64 for the nouveau drivers. Should this not also be applied to amd64?

  * Enable CONFIG_ATH5K=m for i386/amd64
    - LP: #306719
  * Build all i386/amd64 AGP/DRM components as modules.
    - LP: #312721
  * git commands are now installed outside the default $PATH
    Use 'git CMD' instead of 'git-CMD'.
  * Build in most PATA/SATA drivers. This should allow most i386/amd64 systems to boot
    without an initramfs, though some support work is still required in initramfs-tools
    and grub.
    - LP: #311730
