Dual processor machine hangs on boot
This is a dual P3 1Ghz Dell P420 with 512MB and SCSI hard disk.
I'm a relative newcomer to Linux but have a Gentoo machine se up in the office workingish. However with this machine I installed Fedora Core 4 because of the long winded install process for Gentoo. It worked ok but I was struggling to get some of the odd sound stuff I do to work, so I decide to start fresh with Gentoo, as I know how to get it to work.
I've just finished following the Gentoo installation guide and think i followed to the book, but now I reboot it gets stuck on the line:
511MB LOWMEM available.
found SMP MP-table at 000fe710
DMI s.3 present.
ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x01] lapic_id[0x00] enabled)
Processor #0 6:8 APIC version 17
ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x02] lapic_id[0x01] enabled)
Then nothing more happens.
I have no idea what this means but assume there is a problem with the second processor. I'm fairly sure I enabled SMP into the kernel when I build the kernel.
Can anyone tell me more about what is happening at this point and likely reasons for it to fail here.
