Re: compaq 1600r's with Debian 2.4.18-686-smp



dmesg does not detect the second cpu, yet the bios does and init's it.

cat/proc/interrupts shows 1, ditto cpuinfo

Ive compiled my own kernel, still the same, I have 2 such boxes both only see 
one, ive swapped cpu1 into slot 0 and booted fine, so the hardware seems OK.

this suggests a "common" problem across the hardware

regards

Steven
