Description Sing Wong 2006-01-19 16:55:38 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: Nil
Distribution: Red Hat Enterprise 4
Hardware Environment: IBM Thinkcenter A51
Software Environment: Linux
Problem Description: TG3 cannot be initialized because the upper 32-bit of PCI
BAR address get from the hardware is invalid. This fails when kernel try to
allocate PCI memory resource.
Any Quick fix?
Steps to reproduce:

Doesn't that mean your hardware is busted?

Please share the full dmesg output and output of `lspci -vvxx -s <that device>'

It usually means that the BIOS is not initializing the upper 32-bit of
the 64-bit BAR properly.

Any update on this problem?
Sing, can you attach your boot trace and lspci -vv  please (see #1).
Thanks.

Please reopen this bug if:
- it is still present with kernel 2.6.22 and
- you can provide the requested information.
