    Dual Processor Support


    Is it possible to run Fedora Core 2 on a dual processor without error?

    I've read of cases where the installation has gone wrong.
    If FC2 is not compatiable with dual processors, what Linux distro(free) can?

    does it not install by default??

    I installed redhat 9 on a dual CPU machine and it chose the smp kernel for me without any extra effort, surely fedora 2 has not removed something like that

    SuSE loads the SMP kernel automatically as well.

    I have installed FC2 on a computer with hyperthreading and it automatically installed the smp kernel as well as the regular kernel. You simply have to select the smp kernel on bootup

    Same with me, HT support in SMP is great thing and works for me Try to update to latest kernel and you'll see the smp version as well.
