System: NetBSD hideo 1.3F NetBSD 1.3F (HIDEO) #0: Fri Jul 17 15:54:35 MDT 1998 root@hideo:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/HIDEO i386

My logs are filled with lines like these:
Jul 17 17:17:56 hideo /netbsd: APM set CPU busy: unknown error code (0x5306)
Jul 17 17:19:59 hideo /netbsd: APM set CPU idle: unknown error code (0x5305)

I've seen these before, on other machines, but I didn't bother reporting them.
They make working on the console quite annoying.
Compile a kernel with apm in it.

This machine is running a TYN titan-pro chipset, with an Award BIOS.
I can get more info on that, if needed.

I should state, for the record, that I have no idea how to configure the
APM settings in the BIOS.  :-/
