1 Information about Linux/PPC SMP mode 2===================================================================== 3 4This document and the related code was written by me 5(Cort Dougan, firstname.lastname@example.org) please email me if you have questions, 6comments or corrections. 7 8Last Change: 3.31.99 9 10If you want to help by writing code or testing different hardware please 11email me! 12 131. State of Supported Hardware 14 15 PowerSurge Architecture - tested on UMAX s900, Apple 9600 16 The second processor on this machine boots up just fine and 17 enters its idle loop. Hopefully a completely working SMP kernel 18 on this machine will be done shortly. 19 20 The code makes the assumption of only two processors. The changes 21 necessary to work with any number would not be overly difficult but 22 I don't have any machines with >2 processors so it's not high on my 23 list of priorities. If anyone else would like do to the work email 24 me and I can point out the places that need changed. If you have >2 25 processors and don't want to add support yourself let me know and I 26 can take a look into it. 27 28 BeBox 29 BeBox support hasn't been added to the 2.1.X kernels from 2.0.X 30 but work is being done and SMP support for BeBox is in the works. 31 32 CHRP 33 CHRP SMP works and is fairly solid. It's been tested on the IBM F50 34 with 4 processors for quite some time now.
