I would like to know if hyperthreaded x86 computers need kernel SMP option
activated in order to use that feature.
Furthermore, in the above-mentioned case, I need to know if FC3 is provided
with a default SMP kernel because I have to install the distribution on a
hyperthreaded P4 box and only after a while I will have time for kernel
My last question is about the hyperthreading itself: Do we really get
improvements by turning on that feature? The kernel has been written with
supported multiple CPU operations, so I think it would benefit from hyper.,
but what about KDE, konqueror, kdevelop, qtdesigner and gcc (these are my
most used applications) ?
I thank you all in advance for each reply.
