It should work fine with IOAPIC, no?
No, it does not. It was more a question of what was desired. The first step would probably just be to get the IOAPIC case working well and make sure the _PRT is populated in ACPI and MP Table is correct. (For example, in typical systems, ISA IRQs are not used for PCI INTx on an I/O APIC, but interrupt pins above 15 are used). -- John Baldwin _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-virtualization To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-virtualization-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
