what kernel messages say at boot time about mtrr?

> I'm running mplayer with -vo fbdev -ao null -dvd 1 /dev/dvd -benchmark
use -nosound instead of -ao null

> BENCHMARKs: V:  2.000s VO: 0.000s  A: 0.080s Sys: 38.246s = 40.326s
> BENCHMARK%: V: 4.9596% VO: 0.000% A: 0.1973% Sys: 94.8431% = 100.0000%
something went wrong...
it says that video display ate 0% cpu, and decoding eat 5%...
impossible, even on my 1GHz p3 it's 20% and 8%

try with -nosound (or if you have soundcard, then use it, don't disable

how long this benchmark ran? run it (watch movie) for 2 minutes, then exit.
