where do i put this line?


Hello again

I have a question, when i run the command
Code:
$ dmesg | grep -i vga
[    0.000000] Console: colour VGA+ 80x25
[    1.164230] vgaarb: device added: PCI:0000:00:02.0,decodes=io+mem,owns=io+mem,locks=none
[    1.164382] vgaarb: device added: PCI:0000:01:00.0,decodes=io+mem,owns=none,locks=none
[    1.164529] vgaarb: loaded
[    1.164622] vgaarb: bridge control possible 0000:01:00.0
[    1.164717] vgaarb: no bridge control possible 0000:00:02.0
[    8.250860] vgaarb: device changed decodes: PCI:0000:00:02.0,olddecodes=io+mem,decodes=none:owns=io+mem
[    8.251000] vgaarb: transferring owner from PCI:0000:00:02.0 to PCI:0000:01:00.0
[    8.999672] [Firmware Bug]: Duplicate ACPI video bus devices for the same VGA controller, please try module parameter "video.allow_duplicates=1"if the current driver doesn't work.
Anyone knows where do i put the instruction "video.allow_duplicates=1"?

I googled it, but they only mention to put it on grub, but in Slackware, we have lilo ...

Thanks in advance

It says module parameter so the "video.allow_duplicates=1" should be added to a conf file in /etc/modprobe.d/.

OK but did you see 'man modprobe.conf and 'man modprobe.d'?
