Dell 9400 both cores working
krille in InsanlyMac forum discovered that both cores of a T7200 in a Dell 9400 are working if you go to sleep after boot. After the resume both cores are working !!!
I have tried and it is really working.
So far I have really no explanation what is the cause for this strange behaviour.
My OS is 10.4.9 updated with JaS ComboUpdate (thanks for the great work !!)
Kernel Netcas 15.3. (installed by the update)
So it would be important to find out the cause, hopefully it will work sometimes without going to sleep before work :-)
Mi laptop, compaq nx9420, dual core, 5600, seems to work correctly with two cores... well almost;
in fact it stops sometimes at boot with the message "could not start cpu etc..." but after a reboot it works correctly.
I found only two softwares that crash with dual core enabled: fusion beta 2, if I set a vm as bi-processor, and photoshop (it crashes also in single core mode, however ...).
At start, i believed the dual core was not working at cold start, because it worked mainly after a reboot from windoze, now I can say it means nothing, it works independly from a full reboot, it's just random.
My hackint0sh is a 10.4.8 jas upgraded at 10.4.9 with koolkal updater;
