MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

 



Is there any patch or workarounds about this bug on 2.6.x kernel? I already googled this, there are patches on 2.4.x kernel but i dont like downgrading the kernel. Or if someone already did a kernel tweaking/hacking about these issues it would help.
NOTE: I don't think that there are bugs/problems on the BIOS because
this box has been already tested and runs smoothly without any problems
and issues on FreeBSD 6.1
