Hi,<br><br>I'm trying to get the most out of my Intel Core 2 Duo on Ubuntu 6.10. I read that you need to install the SMP kernel in order to get multiprocessor support on ubuntu. I currently have the 2.6.17-10-generic kernel running on my Ubuntu installation and "top" tells me that I have 2 CPUs. When I search for an smp package in synaptic, the package manager tell me that the linux-686-smp is obsoleted by the linux-image-generic which is the current image installed.
<br><br>This confuses me. Does this mean that I don't need to install any SMP packages as they are all included already? Is there a good benchmark for dual core CPUs for linux?<br><br>cheers<br>Yorlick<br>
