I wrote that; please don't include writing of others in your posts
without proper quoting (and please don't top-post).

Not according to Google.

The detection of the amount of video RAM is not tied to the detection of
the graphics chip/card. I don't know of any cases where the radeon
driver doesn't detect the correct amount of video RAM, especially not
with such an old card. I suspect you're either looking for a solution to
a non-problem, or a hardware problem.

Also, even assuming that your card indeed has 32 MB but the driver
misdetects it as 64 MB, the VideoRam directive you have in your
xorg.conf limits the driver to only use 32 MB. (Maybe posting a
Xorg.0.log resulting from commenting out that directive could help us
understand the problem better)

I have no idea where kcontrol is pulling that number out of, but you can
probably safely ignore it.
