PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 1 of device 0000:00:00.0


I have a brand new IBM x346 that I've been running Fedora Core 3 on for a while. Sometime after the last update the system started crashing with no error messages and immediately doing the POST again. The hardware error log looked like a bad CPU. I had IBM out and they replaced the CPU and motherboard. Still having these crashes with no error indication out of the blue.

Here's the snippet around the PCI message...

PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 1 of device 0000:00:00.0
IBM machine detected. Enabling interrupts during APM calls.
apm: BIOS not found.

I've been noticing the PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 1 of device 0000:00:00.0 message and am wondering if this could be the problem. The output from lspci looks like this:


00:00.0 Host bridge: Intel Corp. E7520 Memory Controller Hub (rev 0c)
Subsystem: IBM: Unknown device 02dd
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0
Memory at <ignored> (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Capabilities: [40] Vendor Specific Information

I also started getting Segmentation Fault errors when I tried to run ntpd. Those errors have now stopped and I can get ntpd to run.

I'm thinking about rebuilding Fedora Core 3 on another drive thinking I might have corrupt software on the disk.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

The BIOS was up to date until I just noticed a new BIOS as of a few days ago. I'm going to install that and see what happens.

The only other thing I was wondering about was IBM specific drivers. Since this is a memory controller I didn't think there were any drivers that could be updated.

Thanks!

Looks like I'm all set now. IBM released BIOS V1.07 on Tuesday. I updated to it and things are looking better.

The ntpd issue I had turned out to be the user option in /etc/sysconfig/ntpd. It was expecting a password of ntp... ntp:ntp. I used passwd to update the password and now it's running like a champ.
