Hello!

I have a Pentium D (dual core) and had recently upgraded my linux kernel to support smp so I\'ve enabled the second core..... I\'m somehow noob on this, jeje ;P

I\'ve raised the max number o cpu\'s to 2 in the prefs and updated the project (only one project running: climateprediction hadcm3 5.15). Restarted and everything.

When watching the cpu loads I see that only one processor is working, while the other only gets load when I do something else like moving a window on the desktop.

Is this task not capable of using both cpu\'s or I have some configuration problem? And if the first is right, how can I get the project to work in two units at the same time?

Thanx

There is a problem with getting the preference changes to actually work, and which won\'t get fixed until the next server software upgrade.

There is a work around which involves creating a local override file.
This is described here at the Berkeley site Preferences Override File, and talked about at cpdn here: this thread, starting at the indicated post, and \"working up to the latest post\".
