Is running aprox. twice as fast as my watch ???!!!???
Booting with the "noapic" options corrects the clock but then the Bluetooth controller is not working anymore. Other boot options:
- no_timer_check : doesn't change anything
- disableapic : doesn't boot anymore
- nolapic : doesn't boot anymore
- noapictimer : doesn't boot anymore
Hoped the following kernel security update will fix the problem, but it looks like the kernel version 2.6.11 has a general problem with this processor and with this chip set.
Installing YOU patches
- select all security updates
- select Multimeda Option Pack 1-4
- using yast2 select following packages (in addition accept to resolve dependencies from previous update)
- start YOU again
- accept kernel update
