View Full Version : [ubuntu] PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource - gutsy

May 5th, 2008, 01:46 PM

Have a new Lenovo 3000 n200. Installed hardy on it and had issues with stability - had no errors though. Install gutsy on the laptop and no stability issues but onboot I see a message which begins

PCI: failed to allocate mem resource

In another thread (regarding a different laptop) someone replied saying this was a kernel issue and would be fixed in hardy. Which explains why i didn't see it when using hardy. Just wanted to confirm this was the case for this laptop too?

I had the same problem with my Acer laptop with 7.10
After installing 8.04, the problem was gone.

I had the problem in Gutsy on this HP Pavilion dv2600.
Problem is gone in Hardy.

Thanks for replies - yeah i didn't have it in Hardy. I'll go back to Hardy soon as its a bit more stable. Had issues with installing software and then rebooting and all panels disappearing. Rebuild the laptop 3 times on hardy. Same thing each time.
