AFAIK FreeBSD agp driver doesn't support 945 chipset:
with a bit of hacking (aka add the appropiate ids in the appropiate
files) it will attach, but it won't work.

That was the situation when i last tried to make my 945g work
a couple of months ago, and so far i don't remember any progress 
on this front, but you can prove me wrong here... :)



Piso's first law: nothing works as expected!
