Re: cpu problem

Hi,

Have you got the kernel which supports multiprocessing ?

you will have it in the installation CDROM #1 .

kernel-2.4.x.SMP.rpm

Install this kernel replace the current bootable kernel with the above kernel thru /etc/lilo.conf

Re: cpu problem

If the CPU is working you should have to do nothing for the OS to use it. If you want an optimized kernel, choose one of the mp(multi processor) kernels available with the OS.

As noted in the prior post.....
