nono, I think you misunderstand.  I'm looking for an SMP kernel for ARCH.  I have yet to find one.

The default archlinux 2.6 kernel has SMP  smile


A good friend will come and bail you out of jail...BUT a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn...that was fun!"

Re: installing a different kernel

Actually, you could enable each little option available in the kernel, and it would run.

The kernel just probes your hardware, and only launches drivers you need.
