I have the following problem, maybe common to others even if I was not able to find a solution in the forum:
We had a dual dual-core opteron (opteron 275) computer with Asus K8N-DL motherboard (Phenix BIOS) and 6 Gb of RAM (6x1, bought in april 2006). It has a linux partion (suse 10.0) and a small windows partition (30Gb, mainly for "safety" reason, essentially never used).
Now memory had been upgraded to 12 Gb (6x2Gb) but it is not possible to boot linux.
Suse freezes and only gives a black screen.
I tried to upgrade to Suse 10.2 or install Fedora 6 (they had been installed without problems in similar workstations...) but Suse does not install (black screen) and FC6 gives a problem:
CPU 0: aperture @ 12000000 size 32 MB
Aperture from northbridge cpu 0 too small (32 MB)
No AGP bridge found
Your BIOS doesn't leave a aperture memory hole
Please enable the IOMMU option in the BIOS setup
This costs you 64 MB of RAM
Mapping aperture over 12817793024 KB of RAM @ 1288490188
