Re: 2.6.32 kernel needs noapic on Acer Travelmate 430 which earlier kernels did not need

ACPI interrupts, so I added noapic and it now boots.

You really need to file a bug report for this. Figure out what kernel you are using (try running 'uname -r', and then match that up with 'aptitude search ~ilinux-image' to get the package name), then run

    reportbug  linux-image-<version-from-above>

[This depends on you having either configured your networking so that 'reportbug' can use whatever mail server you have installed to send the message, or the proper configurations in your ~/.reportbugrc file so that 'reportbug' can send directly to the Debian BTS server.]
