Question SMP support in Linux 7.3

What is the SMP support like when you are running Linux 7.3 on a system with 2-4 CPUs?

I don't understand your question...
I would assume that it's just like any other OS that uses SMP for a single instance of the operating system (or other dedicated software)...

Sorry living Free.
What I want to know is how many CPUs would Linux 7.3 allow you to run in one system?

For example Windows 2000 Pro allows 2 CPUs and Server 2000 allows four and if you need to run more, you'll have to get a multiple CPU instruction patch from a partner software company.Smilie

It should run just fine on a 2-4 CPU box.
According to the HOW-TO (you should really learn how to use google...), the 2.2 series kernels should theoretically work for up to 16 CPUs on an Intel machine. Redhat 7.3 uses a kernel in the 2.4 tree, so I can't be 100% sure of any changes.

Here is the HOW-TO I am referring to:
