ASUS motherboard problem with Linux – Kernel panic APICLocked
I have put together the hardware to build a Linux server but when trying to install Linux I get a warning message saying “Kernel panic – not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn’t work! Try using the ‘noapic kernel parameter”.
I have googled this and there is a work around but it appears that this also has problems. There are some o/s’s that will install (OpenSUSE, FreeBSD) but not the one I wish to use. I think this is because OpenSUSE uses a newer Kernel but I’m no expert so could well be wrong.
I would like to replace the ASUS M2n-XE motherboard but am unsure if this problem is across the whole ASUS range. Has anyone experienced this problem with other ASUS boards and can anyone recommend a good motherboard that doesn’t have this problem.
