Hyperthreading, SMP and nvidia-installer
1 Attachment(s)
The 4496 (and 4363) driver worked fine under a single processor system. But the second I turned on SMP to get hyperthreading functionality insmod nvidia.o started failing. (Yes, I did recompile after adding SMP into the kernel.)

Here is the nvidia-installer.log file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

it runs ok here

did you sort out acpi as well to get ht working?

as in if you do cat /proc/cpuinfo

what do you see (1 or 2 processors)?

I see 2 Processors.

Yes ACPI is turned on for the processor. Unless I missed some step (which is entirely possible.) General Setup --> ACPI Support -->[*] ACPI Support, <*> Processor.

FINALLY got this working... after playing around with it this weekend, I found the problem to be the 2.4.23 kernel I was using... I compiled a 2.4.22 kernel and it worked perfectly :)
