ReactOS and SMP

Post by artamb » Fri Jun 23, 2006 1:32 pm

Greetings:

I don't if I am asking this inthe right forum, but I have search all of the databases and can't find the answer to this question:

When will ReactOS be supporting SMP for both Dual AMD and DUAL Intel based workstations?

IS this even on the road map yet?

thanks!

SMP somewhat already

Hello, the SMP option isn't in the road-map because we already support SMP. At least a bit and some, now I don't think we have anyone working on it, I think Hartmut Birr was working on it before, but he isn't with us anymore, now there is no one working on it anymore, but in time this is going to be interesting again and someone would like to use his dualcore computer in an effective way so he/she will keep on coding I think.

SMP=Symmetric Multi-processing. It's what you need to use Multi-CPU Systems or Dual Core CPUs.

I havn't been able to successfully try a SMP-build, so I don't know.
