My Linux system is
Motherboard: Abit BP6 Socket 370
CPU: Intel Celeron 466Mhz x2
RAM: 64M SDRAM x1
HDD: Western Digital Caviar 10.2GB x2
CD-ROM: ATAP 40X
dmesg shows the below messages.
mtrr: your CPUs had inconsistent fixed MTRR settings
mtrr: probably your BIOS does not setup all CPUs
I got really trouble this system. Especially, when I shutdown it,
the system stop before shutting down eth0 (NE2000 PCI Network card.) and
I just managed to shutdown it externally. And then, severe error report
while booting fsck error "unmounting clearnly..." The fsck almost
couldnot fix the partitions' illegal IO blocks. So, I used to spend
horrible time only run fsck manually.
And the worse stuff was the system stopped! whenever I did basic file
tar zxvpf linux-2.2.16.tar.gz # data crc error
cp redhat-6.2-i386.iso /usr/software # in this case 'timeout waiting
System stopped complaining 'DMA stuff'
My last trial was to reinstall Linux system formatting the Hard Disk.:(
I just finished new kernel installation (2.2.16). It worked fine.
Is there special BIOS setup for Dual CPU system? I cannot find MTRR
related stuff in the MB manual I have.
My first SMP machine is going through a lot of trouble. :(
I wanna here SMP related info including kernel configuration and BIOS
setup beyond the SMP-HOWTO document. <- I read it several times and
followed the guide line.
