I spent a day today working on getting my new AMD X2 (dual core cpu)

Interrupt routing in APIC mode (SMP turned on) is a complete mess...
virtually nothing works. The hard drive on ata0 works, but ata1,
usb, firewire, and network interrupts do not get properly routed. I
was able to get the on-board network working by adding polling support
to IF_NV (and as a bonus I got it to negotiate at GigE speeds now too).
SMP itself does work, however, so I am confident that it is simply an
interrupt routing issue.
I'm probably going to need Joerg's help to get the interrupts routed.
I will start diagnosing the issue tomorrow. All I can say right now
is that it is seriously confused.
Is this NForce based ? if so, I'd say good luck to you, why do you want
to buy a closed source machine? I have already regreted buying one
Nforced based MB. ;-)
