Hello Suresh. Thanks for responding.

I've done 4 successive boots with the boot parameters as shown below.
Each boot was basically: set correct parameters in grub -> login to KDE
-> reboot and check for artifacts.

1) (none) --> clean
2) vga=791 --> artifacts
3) vga=791 nopat --> clean
4) vga=791 video=vesafb:mtrr:3 --> artifacts

So the mtrr option did not help (if I passed it correctly; the double ":"
is somewhat non-intuitive). The kernel log also does not show any
difference I can see in the last boot, but I don't know if the mtrr option
is supposed to show up in any way.

From the kernel log for each boot:
1) x86 PAT enabled: cpu 0, old 0x7040600070406, new 0x7010600070106
Console: colour VGA+ 80x25

2) x86 PAT enabled: cpu 0, old 0x7040600070406, new 0x7010600070106
Console: colour dummy device 80x25
console [tty0] enabled

Hope that helps. If you need any additional information, please ask.

Cheers,
FJP
