xfree86 logs - "Failed to set up write-combining range"


I have been trying to track this down for the last couple of days. When running startx, the logs show the following:

(II) VESA(0): Splitting WC range: base: 0xe8000000, size: 0xd0000
(II) VESA(0): Splitting WC range: base: 0xe8010000, size: 0xc0000

(WW) VESA(0): Failed to set up write-combining range (0xe8000000,0xd0000)

I have found lots of information saying that this might have something to do with MTRR, with the drivers for certain graphics cards, etc.. Unfortunately, what I have not yet found is a solution. The graphics "card" in this case is the on-board Intel 865G chipset.

1. What actually causes the system to try to segment the graphics memory?
2. How do I stop it?

Thanks in advance
