unable to detect XEON dual-SMP on Intellistation Z Pro
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:55 EDT
The installer did not detect the dual-SMP on an Intellistation Z Pro model
6866, type 21u. I installed the SMP kernel, but still can't get the OS to
recognize the dual-proc configuration.
cat /proc/cpuinfo only shows one CPU ID:
processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 6
model : 8
model name : Pentium III (Coppermine)
stepping : 1
cpu MHz : 733.134500
cache size : 256 KB
fdiv_bug : no
hlt_bug : no
sep_bug : no
f00f_bug : no
coma_bug : no
fpu : yes
fpu_exception : yes
cpuid level : 2
wp : yes
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca
cmov pat pse36 mmx fxsr xmm
bogomips : 732.36
There are no MPS or OS settings in the BIOS.
IBMs are known to have problems with the SMP identity in the installer. This is
a known hardware bug where the motherboard is not passing the correct string to
identify itself as SMP. That having been said, it does not explain the fact
that the kernel is not seeing the SMP configuration after installation.
Send me the output from "uname -a" in order for us to replicate this situation.
Waiting for user feedback.
