Configure the Numbers of CPU-Cores

Postby inl1ner » Fri May 16, 2014 2:22 pm

I have installed Mint Petra in "Windows 8.1 Hyper-V," which lasted several hours.
As a default 1 CPU has been established.
Because my PC has a 8-core CPU, I want to change this setting, but I found no menu to do so.

I tried to search the forum for the topic "cpu settings", however the term CPU was constantly
ignored so that only "settings" left over, which of course gave unacceptable results:
(Search found 37377 matches: cpu settings - ignored: cpu ).

Is there a solution to both problems ?

Regards

Moved here as I think you are running Linux Mint as a guest on a Windows host? I'd expect you'd configure the virtualized resources on the host OS, or have you installed something on Linux Mint to be able to do that? Looking up how Hyper-V handles virtualized CPUs, I think you have some reading to do as you're not understanding how Hyper-V does this: http://www.altaro.com/hyper-v/hyper-v-v ... explained/

As for your search problem, please just use your preferred Internet search engine. Add the search term "site:linuxmint.com" to limit search results to the Linux Mint websites. All major search engines support that. That way you can also use the advanced options your search engine gives you for limiting your search results further.

For example, search for "cpu settings site:linuxmint.com" on Google or DuckDuckGo.

But as explained, you won't find relevant result with that as you're going about this the wrong way. Configure Hyper-V. if you need help with that, probably there is some Hyper-V users' forum?

in Virtualbox > Settings > System item > Processor tab.
Windows assumes you're an idiot.
Linux demands proof of it.

if you mean how do you use a USB device with virtualbox, all I can remember is you need to put the host user into a group called vboxusers or something. i think there is a Spatry video on YouTube about this.
