Default Intel 945GM Chipset.

Hello i have this video card:
0000:00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)
0000:00:02.1 Display controller: Intel Corporation Mobile Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 03)

dmesg |grep agp
Linux agpgart interface v0.101 (c) Dave Jones
agpgart: Detected an Intel 945GM Chipset.
agpgart: Detected 7932K stolen memory.
agpgart: AGP aperture is 256M @ 0xd0000000
My kernel is 2.6.16-rc5, i am using xorg 6.9.0.dfsg.1-4, i810. The driver of this xorg, for my intel video card, dont run, so i have compile the xorg 7.0 i810 driver, but either run. So finally i have compile dri freedesktop 20060317 module for i810 and this work fine.

Now i can start Xs without vesa driver, and use i810 driver but no more that 8 mb of videoram, xort log:
(--) I810(0): Chipset: "945GM"

              If you encounter this problem please add
                 Option "DisplayInfo" "FALSE"
              to the Device section of your XF86Config file.
my /dev/agpgart exist:
crw-rw----  1 root video 10, 175 2006-03-18 17:37 /dev/agpgart
My user is in video group (but root either run), agpgart module is load into de kernel. intel_agp module is load too.
In my xorg.conf i have put:
        VideoRam        65536
Any idea about how can i get the maximun VideoRAM ?

Thanks and regards.
