    :: AFAIK, the option to compile w/o APIC is only for UP systems.  If you

    I haven't seen the beginning of the APIC/VIA/Tyan thread, but isn't there a
    way to check if the APIC's OK, instead of resorting to workarounds like the
    above?

    ;-).

    That's a good point, actually. I can't recall a single BIOS or device BIOS
    flasher that works under anything but DOS (or in some cases, Windows). Is
    there any work being done on this for Linux?
