I tried what you said, but get this error from X:
(EE) Failed to load module "via" (once-only module, 167330608)
FATAL: Module agpgart not found.
[drm] failed to load kernel module "agpgart"
FATAL: Module via not found.
[drm] failed to load kernel module "via"
(EE) VIA(0): [dri] DRIScreenInit failed.  Disabling DRI.

But, if I use a kernel with the epia-patch, it runs just great. Except
that my tv-tuner don't work. And if that doesn't, some of the idea about
Mythtv is missing. So I have a little problem :)
