Bug#280951: Sarge RC1 Boot disk won't work without noapic
I'm not quite sure what package to file this against, please reassign
it if this is not correct.
The Sarge RC1 boot disk doesn't see the IDE in a Presario 711 EA (AMD
Duron) unless I mention ``noapic'' on the boot line. The BIOS
disables the APIC, and cpuid claims the processor doesn't have a local
APIC. However, the kernel reenables it.
I don't know what the solution is; I usually use non-APIC kernels on
this machine, thus avoiding any trouble. I guess documenting the
issue might be enough.
