Hello,
For several recent PC's the solution was to add "noapic nolapic" as kernel boot options.

So therre's the workaround, but I'm not sure where to input this option.
Just add "noapic nolapic notsc" whitout the quotes to every append line of your /etc/lilo.conf file. Afterward, type "lilo" as su in a terminal

beware when using noapic on some boards

i have msi -RS482m4
mother board (ati xpress 200) and an Athlon X2
NoApic causes most if not all hardware on my PCI bus to fail and not work (i could boot but no pci or onboard components worked)



i have tried custom built 2.6.12mdk vanilla2.6.14 and 2.6.15rc1
kernels (smp, opteron64, tried RTC enhanced RTC etc and everything i can find even slightly relatedto clocks clockspeed and CPU) none have worked


from booting 10mins xine plays normal and clock runs fine (hwclock and RTC retain correct time)
but the software date races ahead slowly.

after 10 minutes 5 seconds pass per second within
1 hour minutes go by per second.


no_timer_check doesnt have any effect i''ll try notsc now though

since mine is gaining 30-40 seconds per minute yours might be a different bug
