Bug#280951: Sarge RC1 Boot disk won't work without noapic
Thanks for you prompt reply, Joey.

The problem exists in all 2.4 kernels up to and including .24 (I
think, most definitely .22), and in all 2.6 kernels up to and
including .7. I believe it's the hardware that's broken.
While I haven't tried the installer, I don't believe that the kernel
issue will go away. However, I'll be glad to give it a spin if you
point me to the right images.
Why doesn't the installer use a noapic kernel, as it did in Woody?
Unless there are machines that cannot boot noapic, wouldn't it be more
reliable to do that?
