I just took the plunge - I left Mac OS X for a single-boot Ubuntu Linux machine.
I've just finished installing Ubuntu on a Dell M90 Core 2 Duo. I've finally got everything set up properly (Beryl, Intel 3945 wireless, NVIDIA drivers, etc), but I can't for the life of me get Linux to recognize both cores.
It says in the Ubuntu guide that it should be as easy as
sudo apt-get install linux-686-smp
I do that, with no errors, but then when I run
, but I still only see a single processor.
Is there anything else I need to do to enable multicore? Do I need to recompile the kernel?
Thanks alot (my first post here too!)
