"MP BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC". How long do we have to live with this, obviously the people at Canonical are too busy with planning a new revolutionary release every 6 months to bother about this. Won't you please do something about it? I have already tried the option of upgrading my BIOS (http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=33842
), didn't help. Using the 'noapic' option in grub is not really a solution, just a workaround. I will always be left with the feeling that i cannot utilize the full capabilities of my computer, as long as this bug exists.
