A few problems after upgrade


When I upgraded to 2005LE from 10.1 I went ahead and did a fresh install cause i wanted a 10g XP partition. I have a couple of problems with 2005. One is smb4k doesn't see my home network anymore, in 10.1 it worked out of box. Does anyone know what changed to make this happen? Next what happened to Kaffiene? My urpmi database locks every now and then. While this is fixed by a simple restart, I never had 10.1 do this. Does anyone know why it locks. And finally my FAH client now only runs 50% cpu instead of the previous 100%.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Zach

Only answer that I may have is for the FAH client. I could be totally off base here, but if you have hyperthreading turned on in the processeor, the kernel sort of treats the processor as a dual processor. "top" will actually show 2 processors.

Ha! You're right on that top says F@H is using 99% of cpu. So I guess the processor applet will only read 50% at full speed. Thanks for that bit of info. Is there any was i can get F@H to use the "second" prcessor?

urpmi is locked probably because it is already running(you might think it is cancelled, but it might still be running).
a simple
Code:
killall urpmi
must do the trick.

It actually is using 100% of the cpu. From what I have read and remember, it is just a way for applications to thread better to the processor. There is a lot of info on the web on hyperthreading if you want more info. FYI, windows will do the same thing, under the task manager you'll see 2 processors when you actually have only 1 with hyperthreading.
