"Failed to set up write combining range" error when running startx

In my googling I have found lots of references to this problem but no fixes. Does anyone here know of a fix for this?

The graphics card is an on-board Intel 865G graphics chipset.

Thanks in advance

Where in Houston?

Ever come to any HLUG meetings?

Still having the problem? Or did you:
  • find a fix,
  • upgrade your hardware,
  • "upgrade" your kernel/distro,
  • give up (I hope not)?
