I am trying to setup a Dell Optiplex GX1p system, which has a daughterboard
PCI bridge for its PCI and ISA slots:
00:0f.0 PCI bridge: Digital Equipment Corporation DECchip 21152 (rev 03)

However, this bridge is completely ignored and unseen by Linux. It does not
show up in lspci or dmesg (as far as I can tell) at all. The daughterboard is
plugged in, and the PCI cards on it are powered.

How could I go about troubleshooting the problem? Has anyone experienced
something like this before?



Hi Luke,
I have one machine with a PCI Bridge problem. This machine has PCI
TV cards behind a bridge. The cards are never recognized on a warm
boot but they are always found when the machine is cold booted. Go

Anyway, maybe you haven't cold booted the machine and could try that?
