    SubjectKernel Error with i845G
    Hi,

    i have a bought an EPOX board (4G4A+) with Intel i845G chipset. While i was
    trying a 2.4.18 kernel, the machine stops after "Ok, booting the kernel ...". I
    have to use the lilo command mem=<memory without shared graphic ram>M in
    megabytes. All kernels newer than 2.4.3 cause this error. Since version 2.4.19,
    this solution is unusable. I think, this is a kernel problem, because i know
    from other people having the same problem, but other boards with i845G. I need
    the 2.4.19 to use my HPT372. Please help and finf the error.

    I think the problem is a failure in the routine getting the size of memory from
    BIOS. Linux thinks, i have 640k!!! RAM. Only the mem-parameter can solve it.

    Thx
