Region 3


Just tried running from the knoppix live CD and this came up and the desktop will not load properly.
PCI: Cannot allocate resources region 3 of device 0000:02:00.0

Can anyone explain what this means.

Please post the output of the 'lspci' command. And in the future, a topic like 'Can't boot knoppix, resource allocation error' would be far more descriptive. I probably would've looked at this thread when I saw it a couple of hours ago then.

Considering that I have just built a new computer (AMD 64 bit) and Windows is running perfectly on it, and then I try to put SuSe 9.2 pro on it to dual boot it so it was the same as my old computer.
Then I find SuSe will not install, so I tried Knoppix & Mepis and they both show the error I posted about, which prevents me using them.
Is there any way of running this check without access to a live CD, can it be done in Windows?.

region 3 to me means that you have a DVD ROM drive that is configured for region 3. If you are trying to install from a DVD that is not region 3, that may be your problem. You might try to install via FTP or some other method other than cd/dvd.

That PCI region 3 message has nothing to do with DVDs, but with some sort of PCI resource allocation.

Thanks for all your replies, I have tracked it down to a fault with the Raid drivers.
Now I just have to find how to solve it.
