Any ideas why a kernel patch to 2.2.14(agpgart module)might not be available, i.e. it is greyed out when one comes to compile.   The only option available is 'no' which is enabled.   I HAVE selected development code/drivers at the beginning which would be the obvious cause.

you may want to check the documentation on the patch to see if it requires any additional modules/code to be compiled into the kernel.

for example, if it requires PCI support to be enabled, it won't let you enable it until PCI support is enabled.

good luck,

Sometimes there are booboos in the menuconfig scripts.  You try looking in the hidden file .config in /usr/src/linux
and manually edit it to turn on the option.

It would seem that the agpgart patch can only be compiled as a module.
