Booting with kernels 2.6.15_rc displays an error message on the console:
Failed to allocate IO resource #7:1000@10000.
Checking dmesg also shows there are bogus resources:
PCI: Ignore bogus resource 6 [0:0] of 0000:00:02.0
PCI: Failed to allocate I/O resource #7:1000@10000 for 0000:00:1e.0
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot with recent kernels
PCI resource Error message but the system continues to boot normally.
No error message
I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and other users also reported that message with
kernels >2.6.13. I have tried workarouds for HP (i.e. patching
drivers/acpi/scan.c as of https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=116763)
but that didn't work.
On my Dell machine, the resource IO error messages are about the PCI bridge and
the graphics adapter, i915GM. I didn't try kernel argument pci=noacpi.
Is this causing any problems? Which device is at 00:02.0? (check with lspci)

No. No hang, no crash. The system *seems* to work properly.
$ lspci | egrep '00:02.0|00:1e.0'
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile 915GM/GMS/910GML
Express Graphics Controller (rev 03)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: Intel Corporation 82801 Mobile PCI Bridge (rev d3)

upstream bug is closed
Home cleaning. Bug was closed upstream in 2007 so there's no reason to maintain it open here.
