X -config -> failed to set mtrr: invalid argument



On 8.0-current i386 with i845 chipset I gave up on agp and intel driver.
I tried vesa and got

failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument
^C
failed to unset mtrr: No such file or directory

# tail -5 /var/log/Xorg.0.log

In my third attempt to get any form of a working X server I tried the
xf86-video-vesa driver.
(x11/nvidia-driver fails, x11-drivers/xf86-video-nv fails)

I get the following error message:
failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument

In Xorg.log I have the following line at the end"
(==) VESA(0): Write combining range (0x0,0x1000) was already clear
     __________________________________________________________________

not sure what platform this was.

Any advice?

many thanks
anton
