Marc, I noticed you tried the BREAK_TO_DEBUGGER and whatnot already,
perhaps letting us know what hardware you have in your smp box
might help some, I'm running SMP and doing buildworlds and kernel
compiles without a problem. I'm not however, running X nor
doing any desktop work on it.
I think I also figured out what makes the box so damn sluggish
when doing lots of IO *bops dillon* :)
