Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 162850
pci allocation error at bootup seems to be affecting my video card
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:20:51 EST
Description of problem:
when using either the i686
I am getting this error at boot up:
kernel: PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@f8000000 for 0000:01:05.0
kernel: PCI: Bridge: 0000:00:01.0
kernel: IO window: disabled.
kernel: MEM window: e9000000-e9ffffff
kernel: PREFETCH window: f0000000-f7ffffff
It seems to be affecting my video card using the nv driver. Initial text console
seems to work, but when rhgb or X tries to start the system becomes unresponsive.
Moving back to the kernel-smp-2.6.12-1.1421_FC5 and I no longer see the error
message at boot and everything starts up as expected.
Please let me know if you need additional information or testing.
still getting the PCI allocate memory error with the
I'm also experiencing hard system lockups with any of the smp kernels that
produce the PCI allocate error on boot (builds 1422-432), but on reboot I'm not
seeing any messages in /var/log/messages that would indicate what has gone
wrong. The nightly cronjobs seem to be setting off the hard lock condition but
I havent been able to narrow it down to a smoking gun process.
I have no idea if the lock-ups are related to the boottime message about the PCI
allocation error but it is suspicious. Considering the error message as
compared to my lspci output it definitely looks like a boot time problem
associated with the video card. And no... im not using the nvidia driver, I'm
using the nv driver.
For the record here is my lspci output:

Just fyi, I've been tracking pretty much every daily rawhide update and the PCI
error continues to happen with each subsequent rawhide kernel. Running
2.6.12-1.1505_FC5smp currently getting read to boot into 1509.
I'm getting a similar message on FC4 with kernel-2.6.13-1.1524_FC4 from
updates-testing on my Toshiba Satellite 3000-100:
PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:10000@f8000000 for 0000:01:00.0
Neverthelesss, the system works fine up to now, both "nv" and the binary
"nvidia" driver are working.

I get a similar message on FC4 (2.6.14-1.1637) on a HP nw8240:
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 7 of bridge 0000:00:1c.1
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 8 of bridge 0000:00:1c.1
PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 9 of bridge 0000:00:1c.1
Systems hangs immediately when booting the kernel.
It works correctly on 2.6.11-1.1369, but all kernels after this (including
development kernels) are not working.
Created attachment 121296 [details]
lspci output for HP nw8240
While I still don't understand the message text concerncing the PCI mem
allocation at bootup... my issues with my system hanging has been resolved.
I'm closing this out as the original reporter. Anyone else experiencing system
lockups with fc5's kernel should refile. I don't think the PCI allocation
messages at bootup are related.
