comment Out of MTRRs at boot
Doing so results in the drm warning, the no more MTRRs warning, and a new, seemingly more severe message, [drm] failed to find VBIOS tables. cat /proc/mtrr still yields the same output as in the OP.

zgrep 'SANITIZER' /proc/config.gz was already in OP, but I put this one in too.

Indeed, if that is truly what he said, I question his suitability...

Interestingly, this blog entry documents the same laptop that I have, and despite taking the same steps I have, he has a completely different (and by the look of it), correct MTRR table afterwards. Is there some way to manually specify these values? blog.jolexa.net/2009/11/22/buggy-mtrr-on-acer-aspire-one-zg5

To answer all points you made: this computer only has 1GB of RAM. The BIOS only has very basic options (time, etc) -- nothing to allow modifying memory allocation. The graphics card driver is intel and is the latest (stable) version. There is no option in the BIOS to modify the amount of memory being reserved for graphics. This happens when using the following kernels: make defconfig, the standard Ubuntu kernel (stable, 32-bit), and 2.6.37-ARCH (stable, 32-bit), so I don't think it's a misconfiguration.

Actually, that exists in the first dmesg too... so increasing the spare number seems to remove the drm warning, but not the "no more MTRRs" warning.

No luck with either (I already had enable_mtrr_cleanup=1, which just changes CONFIG_MTRR_SANITIZER_ENABLE_DEFAULT, but booting with mtrr_spare_reg_nr=2 doesn't fix it either). I get a different, but similar, error: [ 0.329894] mtrr: no more MTRRs available.

The problem has been there for a while, just got around to posting it here. If you do dmesg | fgrep mtrr do you see the same (or similar) error messages? If not, could you please do zcat /proc/config.gz and pastebin it /w cat /proc/mtrr somewhere for me? Thanks! :)

comment Remove TrueCrypt whole USB encryption in Linux
Formatting will not remove the encryption (although it will potentially overwrite it), it will, however, create a new unencrypted partition, which should work fine for your needs. If TrueCrypt is installed in the MBR, you may also want to wipe the MBR so it doesn't prompt by doing dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/HD count=1 bs=446 (leaves partition table intact but removes bootloader), or dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/HD count=1 bs=512 (removes partition table AND bootloader). You can create another in fdisk with the o command.

At least, related, I suspect. Thanks.
