Dear All,

        I'm trying to set up FreeBSD on my box, which has an Intel
D945GNT motherboard, two 3.2GHz processors, 1GB memory.  The system
installs OK and I've been able to use cvsup to upgrade everything,
remake the kernel (for SMP), build 2.0.2 KDE 3.5.
However, three problems remain unsolved in spite of all of these

1.  Only one processor seems to be used.  The output from top -S is:

   11 root          1 171   52     0K     8K CPU1   0   0:00 99.02% idle: cpu1
   12 root          1 171   52     0K     8K RUN    0 139:40 98.34% idle: cpu0

2.  KDE 3.5 does not like to run any screensaver.  They all run OK on
test, and if I run the actual programs themselves, there is no
problem.  However, KDE will not start them up automatically.

3. does not like any of the files produced from
anywhere else.  I have stuff written in StarOffice 5.2 and in MS Word,
but none of these will open.  Even stuff written using
2 on a MS system is not acceptable.  The error is always "General I/O
Error".  OpenOffice will read files that it has written quite OK and
permissions, ownership, etc all seem to be OK.

        Neither the KDE nor the OpenOffice problem has altered by
upgrading these two systems and the SMP problem is also the same as
with the GENERIC kernel.  uname -a gives:

FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3 FreeBSD 6.1-RELEASE-p3 #0: Sat 
Jul 15 16:46:44 EST 2006     [EMAIL PROTECTED]:/usr/src/sys/i386/compile/SMP  

        Any pointers to any of these problems would be most welcome.
Thank you.
