Troubles with large RAM
Version 8.14.13 (and probably earlier versions) of the driver does not
seem to be able to cope with large amounts of RAM: with 512 MB it works,
with 1.5 GB it crashes the machine as soon as X is started. The problem
is present only if the fglrx kernel module is loaded, but independently
of whether (CONFIG_HIGHMEM) is enabled.
Version 8.16.20 seems to fix the problem.
A workaround is to limit RAM by adding the |mem=864m| kernel parameter.
As stated above, 8.16.20 "seems" to fix the problem, but I wanted to be
sure before spending money on 1GB.
