noapic boot option
To be able to run mdk 10.1 I have to use the command 'linux noapic'.
Now I know that this turns off kernel support for apic (advanced programmable interrupt controller I later found out), but what exactly is this doing (in laymans terms)?
What is the impact on my system by doing this?
What wont I be able to do :-)
It appears that many people have to run linux this way but I have yet to find out what this really does.
Thanks for input!
