Default RmInitAdapter and rm_init_adapter failed

Hi,

Attached my log.
Basically the following appears in dmesg, so X cannot start.
NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x21:0xffffffff:686)
NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
It occur on Monday morning, after the weekend. I don't think anything was installed/updated. The entire information is in the log I've attached. I've tried to browse the web and that forum and there is one suggestion that seems to be related and that one talks about flashing the bios...
Here is my lspci output:
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17GL [Quadro4 200/400 NVS] (rev a3)
03:04.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17GL [Quadro4 200/400 NVS] (rev a3)

Thanks in advance,
Kobi.

This looks like the problem:
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:00.0 disabled
ACPI: PCI interrupt for device 0000:03:04.0 disabled

That's a BIOS or kernel problem, and not an nvidia driver bug.

It looks like you're running an HP xw6200 with the 2.02 BIOS. Version 2.08 is available on HP's website, so I'd suggest updating. You could also try disabling acpi by booting with the acpi=off kernel parameter.

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.
I tried using BIOS v2.08.
Will try your other suggestion as well.

Thanks in advance,
Kobi.

acpi=off didn't help

Should I update the NVIDIA bios as well? Is there a way to do it using Linux? (Since WinXP is a problem for me right now)

BTW, how can I tell the bios version of my NVIDIA card?

Thanks in advance,
Kobi.

I've upgraded to 2.6.16.

Didn't help.

Thanks,
Kobi.

If updating the SBIOS didn't help, then you'll need to report this problem to HP. Only they can address SBIOS issues.

Thanks,

Yep.

Will try. Currently, that is dmesg related messages:

This too is likely an SBIOS issue (but definitely not an nvidia driver bug):
PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@d8100000 for 0000:03:00.0
PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource #6:20000@d8100000 for 0000:03:04.0

Thanks,
