Ok, my mac mini 4,1 or mid-2010 mac mini now dual boots into Oneiric...

I get these dreaded lines:

2011-11-04 23:02:53.802232 E  VDPAU: Error at mythrender_vdpau.cpp:574
(#23, The system does not have enough resources to complete the
requested operation at this time.)
2011-11-04 23:02:53.802246 E  VDPAU: Failed to create output surface.
2011-11-04 23:02:53.802252 E  VDPAU: No presentation surfaces
2011-11-04 23:02:53.802258 E  VDPAU: Failed to create VDPAU render device.
2011-11-04 23:02:53.802272 E  VidOutVDPAU: Failed to initialise VDPAU

and I've been reading that it's cause my mini is allocating 256megs
for video ram.  Any way to change this?
Or will it allocate more video ram if I increase my system memory?
It's got the standard 2GB on it currently,
but if solving my issues involves buying more ram, then I'm willing to
go for it.
