Nvidiafb: unable ti setup mtrr



  • Hello,

    I made a reply on another post about this problem, but I think it will be better if I make my own thread.

    We have about 35 new computers that I have to FOG, the first comp is ready to create the image, but when I try to “Perform full host registration and inventory” (the PXE menu is all fine), computer stops 1s after loading the bzImage & init.gz with the error "nvidiafb: unable to setup mtrr.

    I tried all kernels from [URL=‘http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-2.6.39.1.core/’]Kernel-2.6.39.1.core[/URL] to 3.8.8, the best I could get was with [URL=‘http://sourceforge.net/projects/freeghost/files/Kernels/Kernel-2.6.35.7.kitchensink/Kernel-2.6.35.7.kitchensink/download’]Kernel-2.6.35.7.kitchensink[/URL], I managed to make inventory, but when I try to load image, the filesystem displayed is “raw”, which means copy of the entire disk (931GB).

    I can make all tests required to find a solution to my problem. The reason why it does not work IMHO is because the MB/Video is not old enough.

    ANy help would be welcome.

    Thanks a lot.

    I understood by reading this forum that core.config was less complete than kitchensink.config.

    Regards.

  • chad-bisd: could you please be a little bit more specific? nocsorg and I tried to compile a custom kernel, following your advice.

    Now we have a new message: “address space collision: host bridge window conflicts with System RAM”. Sooner.

    Is this because we’re lacking something from the .config file? We used the last 2.6 kernel available on kernel.org (2.6.39).

    Could you tell us what kernel options we should enable?

    If you have an nVidia graphics card, you may want to search the wiki and compile custom kernel.
