System Monitor only shows one of my CPUs

Postby raywoods on Mon Apr 23, 2012 6:20 pm

Hi
I've just installed LMDE 201204 Mate/Cinnamon 32 bit on to my Sony VGN-SZ5MN/B. When I ran System Monitor I found, where normally I would see two CPUs now there is only one. Has the kernel only seen one of the two CPUs or is it something else?

Thanks.

yeahh, the 32bit kernel is really a 486 because >>
Important info
Multi-core and multi-CPU support in 32-bit kernel:

To guarantee compatibility with non-PAE processors, the 32-bit versions of Linux Mint Debian come with a 486 kernel by default. This kernel does not support SMP, and as a consequence is only able to detect one core and one CPU. If your CPU has multiple cores, or if you have more than one CPU, simply install the 686-PAE kernel and reboot your computer.
