Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

In my /var/log/XFree86.0.log I get the following message:
(II) fglrx(0): Kernel Module Build Time Information:
(II) fglrx(0): Build-Kernel UTS_RELEASE: 2.6.4-bluetooth
(II) fglrx(0): Build-Kernel MODVERSIONS: no
(II) fglrx(0): Build-Kernel __SMP__: no
(II) fglrx(0): Build-Kernel PAGE_SIZE: 0x1000
I've built my own kernel (with bluetooth support, hence the tag above), but I also have SMP enabled for my hyperthreading cpu. I've also compiled the above fglrx driver such that DRI and AGPART both are working. I use the internal AGPART driver.
uname -a :
Linux tux 2.6.4-bluetooth #1 SMP Wed Mar 24 01:38:38 EST 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Now, I ask this question, because I get weird fglrx messages at random times:
[fglrx:drm_ioremapfree] *ERROR* [mappings] Attempt to free NULL pointer
That error appears in dmesg, and it results in either killing the application that was running (browser, gdesklets, etc.) or X as a whole (thereby taking me back to the login screen).
Any ideas on how to make the driver detect that I am running in SMP mode?
