Trying to install x86_64 version of 3.4 loop 3. System hangs in udev. Problem is agp. I have succesfully installed other Linux distros by blacklisting agp, agpgart, amd64_agp, & intel_agp modules to prevent them from loading.
For example, in Sidux there is a cheat-code break=fll-bottom that will break out of an installation while a minimal environment exists, but before udev tries to determine the machine's hardware. I can then go and edit via vi /etc/modprobe.d/bladklist that exists in the installation environment and add those four modules to the blacklist. The installation Linux environment will then continue, allowing an installation.
Another example: In Ubuntu, it is not possible to do a normal installation, but a text-mode "alternate install" installation is possible. The resulting installation won't actually boot, but a livecd can then be run and similarly /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist on the hard-drive edited, adding those four modules, and the installation will then boot.
I am looking for a similar methodology that will somehow allow me to blacklist those modules. Providing cheat-codes, like agp=no or noagp or agpgart=no or noagpgart to the kernel at boot time do not seem to work.
