Description jhaskins 1999-10-09 15:28:02 UTC
SMP is not detected on IBM netfinity 5000, 5500 on install.
you must install the smp kernel and create a new initrd to
successfully have smp running.

Known problem that we are not going to be able to fix, as these machines are
presenting themselves as UP machines.  I have added this issue to a list for
future features, so hopefully something will happen that will allow the
installer to correctly probe the machine.

Did 6.2 help with this problem any?

Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2000-12-20 22:23:24 UTC
I've just checked in a more aggressive SMP detection function.  It should help
in the next release.
