Ok, what is this?

In src/northbridge/amd/gx1/northbridge.c

There is a part, where a Framebuffer Size is compute.
This Framebuffer is only used, if the internal virtual graphic 
accelaration is needed.
Means, if the graphic work is done by the GXM Geode and the cs5530 
In that case the RAM holds also the graphic memory and is used.

I hope I explain that right ;)

However, in my case it is set to 60MB ?!?!
(see older attached *.cap files)

The RAM Modul, which I use is a 64MB SDRAM.

64MB - 60MB = 4 MB :D

I think that is not enough ;)

However, could that be a reason for my problem.
