I got this motherboard on April, 2006 up to now with following problem un-solved
Mouse (ps2/wireless) always hangs if with apic on. Therefore I have to with noapic up on kernel at boot. In doing so PC won't poweroff on exiting, with only the system halted. I injected tremendous effort to get this problem sorted out without result.
Is there any clue? TIA.
Before I came across a website testing motherboards submitted for test to check whether they work on Linux. I lost it somewhere and could not find it anymore. Any advice. TIA
