  error: too small lower memory (0x99100 > 0x98400)

Status in “memtest86+” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “memtest86+” package in Debian:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: memtest86+

  I tried today the new memtest86+ from Lucid after upgrading from Karmic.
  After choosing memtest i got the error message , whether i tried memtest or memtest console.
  The only possibility was to return to grub.
  Had to return to Karmic cause of problems with lvm2... - so i cannot retry it but the event was reproducible.

  Board: Gigabyte GA-MA790GP-UD4H
  RAM: 2x 2x 2048 MB A-Data DDR2 800 MHz

  I also had a lot of entrys in grub2 (2 for Lucid, 1 for Windows 7, 5
  for Karmic, 4 for memtest86+)
