In my experiences with FreeBSD 4-4.8R, you have to uncomment two lines in the kernel config file. # To make an SMP kernel, the next two are needed options SMP # Symmetric MultiProcessor Kernel options APIC_IO # Symmetric (APIC) I/O and then rebuildworld and kernel.

I think you're going to have to give more information than "it doesn't work" if you expect anybody to attempt to offer advice. |O|>Also, how do you verify whether or not both CPUs have been configured |O|>in the kernel...and that they are in fact being used? type: dmesg |more and look through the results. When my dual-cpu loads up, I see where there 2nd CPU is acknowledged. Even doing a 'top' shows me which CPU is in use for each program. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= Scary Gerry -- Senior Systems Manager [EMAIL PROTECTED] -For web-hosting, Perl, PHP & MySql programming see http://www.interpool.ca -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
