Description John Spencer 2000-05-01 16:44:51 UTC
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:

 cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6
model           : 8

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.
