    Question Start-up error message


    When I start up Ubuntu, I get the following error message:

    "Starting up ...
    [ 0.1274621 PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@90000000 for 0000:01:00.0 "

    It goes on to boot fine, and I have not encountered any troubles, but wonder what the message means.

    Any help for a Linux newbie appreciated!

    Hi and Welcome !

    its a BUG in Ubuntu. it pops up in Core Duo Laptops having nVidia Cards mostly. Toshiba users have also reported same error. its priority is very low at launchpad and i dont think developers are going to fix it soon.
    you can ignore that error message safely.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Thanks for the info. I'm running a core 2 duo E6400 on a custom built desktop with an Intel D975XBX2 mobo and an XFX GeForce 7900GS video card. Guess it must be something about the core 2 / NVidia combo that causes the error.

    It did the same thing in my acer laptop... Core Duo, intel video card.

    So I assume its the processor more than anything? I havent used ubuntu in a year, but that was something i was always curious about.
