allocation failed: out of vmalloc space - use vmalloc=<size> to increase size.

Have you tried booting setting vmalloc=128m ?
No. I don't know how to do that.

3) What kind of motherboard do you have, and which BIOS version?
4) If you disable vesafb does that help at all?

Aside from the new kernel and the motherboard, are these all things that can be set in the XF86Config-4 file?

In other words, this is pretty far beyond my knowledge of the inner workings of the kernel and drivers.

Can you point me down the right path so I can see what I can mess up??
