How to get 4 core support q6600 nForce 650?
I'm having a hell of a time figuring out a a way to get 4 core support on my ABIT Fatality IN-FP9 nForce 650 SLi motherboard with a Q6600 quad. Is it possible ?
I have tried both the XxX 10.5.6 w/ppf1 and the iPC 10.5.6 w/ppf2 releases and its basically the same on either. I can only boot with cpus=1 otherwise it randomly crashes during the boot. Both seem to run fine with cpus=1 but, limited testing was done. I really want all four cores.
I usually use the vanilla kernel but, I have also tried the voodoo one and same thing. The only kernel I have found so far that allowed me to boot with four cores was the Kalyway nForce kernel from their 10.5.2 release. Has there never been an update to that version of the kernel ?
I have seen bios mods that fix this for AMI bios but, unfortunately my board has an Award bios. Something about removing the cpu aliases in the DSDT table. Anyone seen modified Award bios for this ? Perhaps a SMBIOS that will allow all four cores to work ?
If I boot with cpus=1 it runs fine. Except the Kayway release which doesn't seem to want to have the nForce Ethernet and Sound going at the same time without crashing. I would really rather run something newer then 10.5.2 anwyay.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
