Does Redhat 9 support dual CPUs?


I am thinking of getting a server. I've heard that Redhat 9 doesn't support Dual CPUs and I have to get Redhat Enterprise to do that. Is this true?

I am thinking of getting a server with Dual Xeon.

hi there

it is not that redhat does not support dual processors
u need to use the kernel with smp support for dual CPU
and redhat 9.0 comes with that package
so when u install redhat 9.0 u can also specify to istall that package after going into "individual package selection" and selecting kernel-smp package to install
