 IO-APIC on Micronics M6DPi
I have a Micronics M6DPi dual pentium pro motherboard with integraded
adaptec 7880 wide scsi.

I get the following message when my 2.1.130 kernel boots after a 'stock'
load of 2.1.130

Anyone have a solution?

Did you recently steal a broken computer?

"Intelligent Connections" and "Jeff Fanelli": I don't see them fit.

Unless this is recycling stolen equipment. Considering the
excellent criminal record of Jeff Fanelli, I would assume the latter.

Jeff, we have all been waiting for more than one year for you to return
various equipment that includes one NEC 6000H Laptop, one Ascend 400 ISDN
router, one 3com Etherlink III PCMCIA Network card + dongle, one Newton
2000, one Yamaha 510CDT keyboard and a 17" monitor, just to name a few. How
is your memory?

Tell me, they just slipped off your hands and disappeared in colored bubbles
while you had something else to do.

You can have them... well, you already took them!

When are you coming back to Holland?

Where are you living now? Detroit?

Still together with Kimberly Fox? Does she know?

I pity your dog.

Happy Christmas, Jeff.

PS: This is not one of your usual LSD flashbacks, this is reality, then
again, you'll never really know.

PPS: Did you perform the BIOS flash upgrade on this machine? The BIOS this
machine gets shipped with have known problems. You can find the file on the
Micronics web site:
