You kernel command line may need to include "apic" to enable the apic

I've used OLPC buildrom as a base, customized the kernel to include the
SATA drivers, IDE, EXT2, EXT3. I removed the boot menu and successfully
boot into a shell with pciutils.


I can't mount my IDE hard drive, even though I can see it in the /proc
filesystem.  I'm trying mount -t ext3 /dev/hda1 /hdd.  


When I do an lspci, all the IRQs are routed to IRQ 0.  I don't know if
this is the root of the problem, or a symptom.


How can I make sure that the PCI settings that I set up in LinuxBIOS get
passed on?





An unrelated note for those that are into OLPC: in linuxrc two of the
device files get made as text files because they are not there early
enough in the process


/sbin/makedevs /dev < device.txt > /dev/null 

is bad because it creates a text file where /dev/null should be. 


The same thing happens to /dev/console in a different place.
