    Default Setting up my MTRR correctly

    I know you guys probably get this a lot. First of all, I have already taken a look at the various guides over the forums and internet, but have yet to find one that works.

    My problem definitely matches the profile: Taking out 2 GB of system memory makes it work, but otherwise nothing does. Running Ubuntu 9.10 x64 with fglrx.

    Important System Specifications:
    Toshiba Satellite A350 PSAL6C-01N015
    4 GB of Memory
    ATI Radeon Mobility HD 3560

    sudo lspci -v

    The solution listed there, nor the script, directly applies, unfortunately.

    You'll want to enable MTRR cleanup in your kernel.

    Visit http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...parameters.txt and search for enable_mtrr_cleanup. That option should be appended to your boot parameters.

    Also, change to the Lucid Lynx 2.6.32 kernel, there should be a patch in there that improves MTRR cleanup support.

    from http://lkml.org/lkml/2008/9/28/7
    Here is my current understanding of the MTRR problems. Please correct
    any mistakes.

    There are two broad reasons (use cases) for Linux to change MTRRs

    (1) to clean up after bad BIOSes.

    (1a) Some BIOSes don't make all the MTRRs the same on all processors.
    This is just wrong and the kernel fixes this.

    (1b) Some BIOSes, for some memory configurations, fail to specify that
    certain bits of RAM should be cached. The current fix is to not use
    that RAM, so the MTRRs are not actually changed, but they could be.

    (2) to allow userland programs to adjust the caching regime for chunks
    of memory.
    Anything more complicated than that is over my head at the moment.

    Already enabled, not helping.

    Good idea. I'm planning on reformatng to ext4 anyway for when it comes out, so whats the harm in doing so a bit early?

    Anything more complicated than that is over my head at the moment.
    Thanks for the help, I'll give it a shot.

    Unfortunately a retarded edit time of 1 minute has been enforced on phoronix.com's forums - so I shall break forum courtesy and double post.

    Here's some more interesting output you may find interesting of dmesg with the mtrr cleanup bits:
    Code:
    MTRR default type: uncachable
    MTRR fixed ranges enabled:
      00000-9FFFF write-back
      A0000-BFFFF uncachable

      D0000-EFFFF uncachable
      F0000-FFFFF write-protect
    MTRR variable ranges enabled:

    reg03: base=0x100000000 ( 4096MB), size= 4096MB, count=1: write-back

    at OP: what is your problem exactly? Your mtrr are looking fine.
    Also, look at dmesg, the part about TOM and TOM2 is the important stuff.

    Probably you don't have a problem with mtrr.
