No SMP in Free Be
Posted on: 03/29/2000 02:32 AM

I have received a few emails on this. Here are a few of them:
From Andy - Probably like so many other BP6 owners with around 500 MB of hard drive space, I got BeOS PE5 installed on my dual rig as soon as I could . . .only to find that the personal (free) edition does NOT support multiple processors. Damn! But I guess this makes sense since it seems to be a big demo more than anything else.

From Mike - You might want to mention on 2CPU.COM that the BeOS 5 README says it doesn't support SMP. The reason for this is when you boot it from windows 98 one processor is disabled and BeOS doesn't recognize it. If you boot Be from a boot disk, SMP works fine.
