Assign more than 128MB vram to a VM ?

Good day everyone. I am running Ubuntu 12.04 as a VM, with VMWare Workstation 9. I have tried specifying a larger vramsize than 128 MB in the .vmx file for the VM. This does not seem to work.

I specify :

svga.autodetect = "FALSE"

svga.vramSize = "268435456"

In dmesg, I see :

[   43.134383] [drm] VRAM at 0xd0000000 size is 131072 kiB

[   43.134381] [drm] Max number of GMR pages is 196608

[   43.134382] [drm] Max dedicated hypervisor surface memory is 786432 kiB

[   43.134383] [drm] VRAM at 0xd0000000 size is 131072 kiB


I would like to be able to assign 256+ MB of vram to each VM. Does anyone have a suggestion on how I might accomplish this ?
