smp but i only have 1 cpu o_O


im in need of mounting an ntfs drive

i went to http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/ to download the software so i can mount the ntfs (i have redhat 9.0)

in the instructions to get the right drivers it says that smp is for systems with more than one cpu

i built my computer so i know i only have once cpu

you're downloading http://linux-ntfs.sourceforge.net/rpm/redhat9.html , right?

you don't need to worry about the smp stuff:

"SMP Users: Please read this.
(If your computer only has one CPU, then you can ignore the rest of this section).

The original NTFS driver (the one in these modules) was written long before SMP processors and pre-emptive kernels became popular. The driver is not SMP safe. That said, it won't crash the minute you use it and even if it did crash, or hang, it will not damage your partition. The only reported problems where when the driver was under a heavy load.

If you need a stable, SMP-safe kernel, then I recommend you download the new driver (as a patch against 2.4.22) and compile your own kernel."
