Hi there.

I recently added linux_base-fc4 on a host, to run linux
setiathome enhanced versions (aka crunchers).

The problem is that on multicore engines (core 2 duo, pentium D, etc...)
where before there was 2 freebsd-crunchers on 2 differents core,
now, with linux-crunchers, the 2 crunchers are sharing only 1 core.

Can someone tell me what's wrong with this ?  Have I missed something ?
Is it an incompatibility from linux_base with smp hardware ?

This problem seems to affects only freebsd 6.x, not the 7 branch.
My kernels are all compiled with SMP support.

I'm working for years with freebsd, but consider I'm really a newbee
with linux.

T.I.A.		PM.
