Hello !

I always have a append line "but different" in my lilo.conf.
Can i add a second append line ?
append = " pci=noacpi pci=biosirq"

Linux kernel: 2.4.20, patched with newest acpi and bttv drivers.
How i can DO that ?
I think in my mandrake 9.1 the kernel is 2.4.

IMPORTANT: disable agpgart support in kernel (it only supports AGP x2 for KT400 and not good anyway)

How i can DO that ?

I think it maybe a good way but i need more step by step please Thank for your solutions mann !!

no, but you can add the string to your current "append" string.
Example:
lets say that you have the following append string:
append = " hdc=ide-scsi"
then you simply add the options afterwards, like that:
append = " hdc=ide-scsi pci=noacpi pci=biosirq"

This probably isn't needed, but you can try it if everything else fails. The process is quite complicated though. You need to install the kernel-sources of your kernel. Should be a package in your distro. Then you need to download the newest patches from the bttv-homepage and sf.net/projects/acpi that match your kernel (probably 2.4.20, type "uname -a" to find out) and finally apply the patches by going to /usr/src/linux and running something like "patch -p1 < [path to the patch]". Then recompile the kernel.
It might very well happen that the mandrake kernel-source aren't vanilla and already contain various patches.

This *is* important. I'd recommend reading about kernel-compiling in the Kernel-HOWTO (checkout the documentation of your distro, should be somewhere in /usr/share/doc/howto...)
In a nutshell: You need to install the kernel-sources of your kernel, then go into /usr/src/linux, run "make menuconfig" => a menu appears, there select "Character devices" and *deselect* "AGP Support" and any drivers for it. Then run "make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install" and if everything went well you've got a new kernel "bzImage" sitting in "/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/" - copy it to /boot, edit lilo.conf accordignly and reboot. For details refer to the Kernel-HOWTO.

This might seem difficult at the beginning but once it is done it is easy.
