I don't have an 810, but I have spent sometime looking at agpgart for the 
purposes of getting hardware 3d rendering on my G200.

One mistake I made - when enabling agpgart, I forgot to also select the 
appropriate chipset - 440BX in my case. From memory, I ended up with an 
agpgart.o module, but it didn't work - not surprisingly. Anyway, have you 
enabled both options - "/dev/agpgart support", and "Intel I810/I815 support"?

By the way, the 810 is on the list of cards with hardware 3d support. It's a 
little tricky to get working, but if you use any GL-based apps, you may find 
a big difference in performance.
