this 'not configured' bit doesn't matter *at all* for X support ? Does
that mean that the video card will be able to work at is full capacity
(1024x1780 @ 24bpp for example) ?
Maybe there is something that I do not understand, but does this mean that
the netbsd kernel uses the video card without the help of the agp chipset?
then, what is the role of the agp chipset if it is not used ?
