Hello all,

I have a Compaq(HP) DL-360 with two CPU's. I installed it with FreeBSD 
5.0 and after that via cvsup I dated Up to 5.2.1-RC2.
For my Kernel I used the following parameters:

----- cut -----
machine         i386
cpu             I686_CPU

options         SMP
device          apic
----- cut -----

I build everything how /usr/src/UPDATING describes. Additional I disable
ACPI too. (echo "hint.acpi.0.disabled="1" >> /boot/device.hints)
Because I cant boot with ACPI on, however. :(

I do a reboot after "make intallworld" and my Compaq starts without any 
problems, but no second CPU.

A "sysctl -a | grep -i cpu" shows:

----- cut -----
kern.threads.virtual_cpu: 1
kern.ccpu: 1948
kern.smp.cpus: 1
hw.ncpu: 1
machdep.cpu_idle_hlt: 1
machdep.hlt_cpus: 0
----- cut -----

dmesg shows:

----- cut -----
CPU: Intel Pentium III (996.85-MHz 686-class CPU)
   Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0x68a  Stepping = 10

real memory  = 536854528 (511 MB)
avail memory = 516009984 (492 MB)
Pentium Pro MTRR support enabled
npx0: [FAST]
npx0: <math processor> on motherboard
npx0: INT 16 interface
pcibios: BIOS version 2.10
----- cut -----

At bootime my BIOS shows two CPU's and an Linux install before shows two
CPU's, too.

What can I do?
