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.

Problem with Linux Mint 13 Mate 64 bit OS. Question is, what could it be that, lscpu shows only 1 cpu instead of 2? I have Intel Dual Core CPU 3400Mhz. Ofcourse this error loads cpu almost to 100% all the time.
Thank you in advance for all your help.

I guees i am being over drammatic, but Compiz is the one to blame. Dragging window around loads up cpu, that leads to a weird lag. I have here Dual core 1,6 mhz Intel cpu. If i upgrade 1 core p4 with Dual Core will it fix the problem?
I though you might have had low RAM and/or a dodgy video card. Shouldnt be a problem with 7GB (odd number, and very rare to get more than 4GB with P4s/Pentium Ds) and a 4850 video card. BTW, you cant really compare the CPU load on a intel dual core with your P4/Pentium D system. Intel video hardware is very weak, and things like compiz can use the CPU with intel video. 1.6GHz makes me think its probably a intel atom which is a low powered CPU as well.
I guess its a hardware problem.
If lshw and/or your BIOS is reporting you have a Pentium D but can only see one core, you have had a CPU core and/or motherboard problem. The other working core could have been damaged by whatever caused the problem with the dead core.
