Failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument

Hi FreeBSD forums,

I've followed several tutorials and I've searched the internet for solutions to this issue, but I haven't been able to come to a resolution. I'm trying to configure X and X11 forwarding to get a GUI on a machine, but after I run:
Xorg -configure

And then test it:
X -config /root/xorg.conf.new

I get the following output:
Code:
Initializing built-in extension DRI2
Loading extension GLX
failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument
It will load a bunch of extensions, but will freeze at the "failed to set mtrr" line. When I run startx or xinit from the command line I get a similar output:
Code:
Loading extension GLX
failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument
exec: start: not found
xinit: connection to X server lost

waiting for X server to shut down failed to unset mtrr: No such file or directory
(EE) Server terminated successfully (0). Closing log file.
The issue is definitely with the mtrr, I'm just not sure how to set it. Is there a particular line in the X config file I'm to set it in? I'd love a solution, but I also view this as a valuable learning opportunity as well. Any help would be appreciated. I'm using the Aspeed graphics controller that's built into the Supermicro board:
Code:
vgapci0@pci0:4:0:0:     class=0x030000 card=0x080115d9 chip=0x20001a03 rev=0x30 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'ASPEED Technology, Inc.'
    device     = 'ASPEED Graphics Family'
    class      = display
    subclass   = VGA
Thanks in advance!

Hello Slable,

I have a similar situation like yours
sometimes after startx, on the terminal,
Code:
...
(==) Using config file: "etc/X11/xorg.conf"
failed to set mtrr: Invalid argument
No protocol specified

waiting for x server to begin accepting connections .
No protocol specified
..
No protocol specified
..
...
Searching around did not yield much results. Do you have any further information? Interestingly, this error does not always happen. It goes away after a reboot. Thanks ahead

This worked for me in VirtualBox (meta-packages 'xorg' and 'xfce' already installed):

Edit /etc/rc.conf and add the line to the bottom:
Code:
dbus_enable="YES"
Reboot

Once rebooted, I logged in and typed in: startxfce4
