Default 2.6.24.4-64 x86_64 ... New IOMMU Error Message

I seem to remember this error message a long time ago on my dual
opteron, but then it went away. Now it has reappeared with the latest
kernel update:

A similar problem has been bothering my box since last August, see

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=278721

However, when the box is rebooted (warm boot) the problem disappears and
the 128 M reserved for AGP aperture in BIOS is found and used. The
problem is there only if and when the box is cold-booted.
My box has an ATI Radeon 9200 PRO VGA compatible controller with nvidia
chipset. The motherboard (Asus K8N) BIOS has no IOMMU option.

HTH, Antti

In my scenario I didn't cold boot, it was just a kernel update and then
a reboot.

Also, I don't even have an AGP slot. So that confuses me even more.
The Asus K8N-DL is a PCI-E Graphics Motherboard.

All right, then it's not quite the same problem. Also, in my case when I
cold-boot, _no_ AGP aperture is found. Only when I reboot the 128 MB of
memory reserved in BIOS for accelerated graphics is found.
On the other hand, in the dmesg exerpt above it is said:
"CPU 0: aperture @ c000000 size 32 MB" and
"Aperture too small (32 MB)"
This seems to indicate that 32 MB *is* reserved for AGP aperture in your
motherboard BIOS. Have you tried changing that to 64 MB or 128 MB?

> Also, I don't even have an AGP slot. So that confuses me even more.

When you say "slot", are you referring to a connector reserved for a
graphics card in the motherboard? According to eg.
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=25&id=1661
there *is* an expansion slot called "PCI Express graphics x16 slot".

"AGP aperture" is not a hardware connector but a portion of RAM reserved
for accelerated graphics. You can change the amount of RAM reserved in a
BIOS setting. In K8N BIOS setup this is done in
"Advanced->Chipset->Aperture Size".

Good luck!
