This seems to be te cause of the “APIC kernel panics”:


(it’s in spanish)

According to the above link, recompiling the kernel to use a timing
frequency of 1000 Hz instead of the 250 Hz solves the “panic” problem.

You can install the “linux-source-2.6.15″ package and follow the
instructions here to build the kernel:


(Note that you have to add a “–initrd” switch in the “make-kpkg” command
to make it generate an “initd.img” and make the kernel boot properly)

The problem is that the restricted modules won`t be installed with this
new kernel, and this includes the “madwifi” driver for the wifi…

So you have to add it.

If you search the page for "APIC," many many people are having this
problem? Is there any way we can get the status of this bug updated?
