Angry *ERROR* mtrr allocation failed (-22)


Hi guys,
the title of this thread is the output of "dmesg | grep fglrx". Hardware acceleration on my radeon 9600 pro works fine but I wanna solve this little problem. I found this trick but it doesn't work:

Quote:
Where to set the boot parameter: This might be a bit trickier. If you use grub you should check /boot/grub/menu.lst or /boot/menu.lst depending on where your file is located. If you use LILO, check you /etc/lilo.conf file. Open your menu.lst/lilo.conf file and go to the line which says "kernel". There you should find something like:

kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,vga=0x31X <---- here you need to add the code foun
After changes lilo tell me there is an error! My lilo.conf is:


Quote:
# LILO configuration file

append="hdc=ide-cd"
boot="/dev/hda"

Any idea? Have a nice day

At image="/boot/vmlinuz" section, try

change :
video=vesafb:ywrap,mtrr,vga=0x31X,vram:256

to:
video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr

If it fails, comment the video line and update the append line like :
append="splash=silent video=vesa:ywrap,mtrr"
