Upgraded to Athlon 64 X2. Which kernel should I install?
 
Hi,

I just installed an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ and I've read that to take advantage of a dual core CPU in i386 Ubuntu, you have to install a different kernel. I know that you install them using apt-get but I want to know which kernel would work best with my CPU.

Thanks.

Any that are SMP enabled. And the better choice is one that is 64bit and SMP.

Run "uname -a" and you should see "SMP" which means it supports X2. The -generic kernel supports SMP.
