- Bug #229365

During start-up processing the following lines are printed to the

Starting udevd Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel 965G Chipset.

Immediately following this, the system completely hung / locked up and
the only way out is the reset button or power cycling.

Hardware is ASUS P5B with Core 2 Duo chip, Intel P965 / ICH8R chipset
with 4 GB of RAM, an nVidia GeForce 7300 videao and an LSI Logic SCSI
interface installed. There is no Intel graphics. Mainboard's vendor
information is at

Work-arounds include:

1) Disabling the BIOS setting that allows software to remap I/O
addresses so the upper-most 1 GB of RAM may be addressed


2) Adding "blacklist intel_agp" to "/etc/modprobe.conf.local"

I ran all publicly announced releases from 10.2 alpha5 through RC1
without experiencing this symptom. It appeared only upon installing and
booting the final release.

The problem does not occur for the system / kernel used by the installer
