Alexander--I do realize I was responding to a message from November
last year. I did not think that would be an issue--I apologize. I was
Nothing to apologize for! It was no complaint and can't.
I meanwhile see the reason to ask quoting that old list posting.
also already aware of the 440GX problem which Alan Cox mentioned, but
that was for Fedora Core 1. Besides, the problem I am having is similar
to what you were experiencing under Fedora Core 3. So, have you worked
around it or are you on different hardware and/or software now? My
system is an acpi system and not apm, so acpi is working correctly. I
think I'm going to have to take this issue to the devel list as I think
it is a bit low-level. Any details?
While the FAQ entry was published when FC1 was current it may help with
current Fedora / Linux kernel 2.6 too.
And it is "noapic" - APIC != ACPI.
