P.S. I know there are posts here similar to this one, but this is different from other posts I've seen cuz all the others were dealing with either ATI chipsets or AMD processors which I do not have. And the system time is like this all the time not just in bursts. I have yet to find a solution that works.
no your right it isnt ATI chips responsible it is a direct result of SMP
i still have no idea to fix it ,
to the bootloader fixed it
however it doesnt help i SUSE
running default Kernel ie Single processor however works fine, sort of defies the point of a dual processor system.
If you have P4 with HyperTheading (not a dual Core)
since the processor itself delegates the 2nd logical (non Existant CPU you dont need a SMP kernel to make use of it.
