Unable to use desktop effects if GARTSize option is set in the xorg.conf file



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

Hi All,

I have a rather strange problem at hand.

If I enable desktop effects then I keep getting the following warning
and eventually my system freezes and then there is nothing that I can
do, but a hard reboot.

*********************************WARN_ONCE*********************************
File radeon_mm.c function radeon_mm_alloc line 216
Ran out of GART memory (for 1048576)!
Please consider adjusting GARTSize option.
***************************************************************************

Now, if I try setting the GARTSize option in my xorg.conf:

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "radeon"
        Option      "RenderAccel" "true"
        Option      "GARTSize"  "128"
EndSection

, I keep seeing the following error in my log file:

(EE) RADEON(0): [pci] Out of memory (-12)
(EE) RADEON(0): [pci] PCI failed to initialize. Disabling the DRI.

And then compiz wouldn't kick in because of the lack of DRI.

Now, I know that I am to pity myself because I am using the ATI card,
but does anyone have a solution to this issue?

Secondly, in the message above, is the GARTSize to be specified in bits
/ bytes / kB / mB ?

thannks,
Rogue
