I did some tests.
On a smp system ( 2xPIII ) :
- bf24 from woody netinstall : dmesg | grep Processors doesn't work.
- mandrake 9.1 with uniproc kernel : dmesg | grep Processors returns
"Processors: 2" and /proc/cpuinfo indicates only one processor.
Now, since mandrake's kernel is heavily patched, maybe it's a feature
from a patch.
The config-2.4.21-0.13mdk is in this rpm file :
I will try to test with the latest kernel from sid.
