    Installation Problem w/ Debian "lenny"

    Greetings All:
    Newbie Problem;

    I have gone through the Disk 1 (amd64) install for "Lenny" twice now and end up with the same results.
    At boot up I see this line after BOOTING THE KERNEL
    [0.167705] PCI: Cannot allocate resource region 0 of device 0000:00:00:0.
    Boot continues on with login prompt still in boot screen.
    I login, and we still are sitting in boot/terminal mode?

    I am at a loss at this point after searching for help elsewhere.
    Hardware: ASUS A8V mobo w/ agp video card and 500mB Ram AMD 64 cpu.

    Thanks in advance! Hoping to Be Free sooner than later.

    Did you install a desktop environment? The base install wouldn't include that. You are reaching a login prompt, which means installation is successful. What happens if you type exec startx?

    Thanks for the quick reply!
    Yes, I did install a desktop environment.
    I will try your suggestion (exec startx) when I get home tonight and reply on results.
    I am new enough at this that I am unaware of what to try, so your reply is greatly welcome.

    I believe this means some piece of hardware isn't being recognized properly.

    Post the output of
    lspci -v
    We should be able to find the device in the output and see if it's anything to trouble yourself with.
