where do i put this line?
Hello again :)

I have a question, when i run the command

$ 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

[    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/.

Hi ... thanks for asnswering ..

hm.. in /etc/modprobe.d/

I just create a conf file in there and put this instruction in there?

Sorry for my question, i'm not familiar with creating config files ... :(

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