Default MTRR setting? Where could I have put it?

Hi list:

I need some help with my memory.

Recently when I quit the X server, the following can be seen in the
sys log:

Jan 20 18:06:34 e-nibbles mtrr: no MTRR for e8000000,2000000 found

and on the TTY where I issued X init, a similar message is shown,
but the message is not echoed in /var/log/Xorg.0.log

Now, I remember having entered something like that somewhere way
back, when I was using the ATI drivers for my laptop (instead of the
radeon drivers from Xorg). The problem is, I cannot remember where
such a line would possibly go! Does anyone have any ideas where I
can start searching?

Thanks in advance,

W

don't do it. Just don't do that. It should not be necessary. Instead look at
the mtrr cleanup options in make menuconfig.

Yes, my point exactly! That *should not* be necessary any longer, so I
am trying to figure out where I might have put this thing which I
remembered having manual inserted so I can undo the damage.

Also, what is this MTRR cleanup option? I can't seem to find it?

are you using a recent kernel? 2.6.27 or 28?

I am using both. I have a mtrr entry in my kernel boot line like this: mtrr:4

but when configuring the new kernel I came across this option:

MTRR cleanup enable value (0-1)

which confused me. What am I supposed to choose here, other than the
default 0 value?

choose 1 with the 28 kernel and everything is fine. That was my success:

reg00: base=0xfffe0000 (4095MB), size= 128KB: write-protect, count=1
reg01: base=0xfffc0000 (4095MB), size= 128KB: uncachable, count=1
reg02: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size= 512MB: write-back, count=1
reg03: base=0x20000000 ( 512MB), size= 512MB: write-back, count=1
reg04: base=0x3f800000 (1016MB), size= 8MB: uncachable, count=1
reg05: base=0x3f600000 (1014MB), size= 2MB: uncachable, count=1
reg06: base=0x3f500000 (1013MB), size= 1MB: uncachable, count=1
reg07: base=0x00000000 ( 0MB), size= 128KB: uncachable, count=1


changed to

reg00: base=0x000000000 ( 0MB), size= 1024MB, count=1: write-back
reg01: base=0x03f500000 ( 1013MB), size= 1MB, count=1: uncachable
reg02: base=0x03f600000 ( 1014MB), size= 2MB, count=1: uncachable
reg03: base=0x03f800000 ( 1016MB), size= 8MB, count=1: uncachable
reg04: base=0x040000000 ( 1024MB), size= 2MB, count=1: write-combining

Sorry for the late reply, I was having some problems with my mail.

I am using 2.6.26 right now. I guess that is the problem. Let me try a
more recent one and report back.

Sorry, but this does not help. I have that after I terminate X, the
following line on the console:

error setting MTRR (base = 0xe8000000, size = 0x02000000, type = 1) Invalid argument (22)

and the following

e-nibbles wwong # dmesg | tail -n 5

Is there anything I misconfigured?

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

I read something about booting with "mtrr_cleanup_debug debug" in the
command line. This will print you out what to set in mtrr_chunk_size in
the commandline. Didn't test it but check that.

It seems to be appeared on 2.6.28 kernel. But not 2.6.26 kernel.
I got both as on my box as the gspca driver for my web camera seems only worked on the 2.6.26 kernel.
