When trying to install Ubuntu, XUbuntu, Fedora or Linux Mint I get the following error and can't figure out what going on.
Here is the error message:
ENABLING IO-APIC IRQs
..TIMER: vector=0x31 apic1=0 pin1=0 apic2=-1 pin2=-1
..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
...trying to set up timer (IRQ0) through the 8259A... failed
...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ... failed
...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ... failed
Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work!
What does this mean? I would really like to get Linux installed on this box.
I have an AMD Sempron 3400+ with the HDD being a 400gig SATA drive with 2gig of DDR2 memory. I'm trying to run in 32 bit mode as well.
Any insight is appreciated.
