I replaced my /netbsd with this version:
rebooted, and now the second cpu comes up wonderfully!
I ran a few processor intensive tasks simultaneously and "top" shows each core
running at 100% and everything looks great.
Hmm, I think you must have installed the GENERIC kernel and not GENERIC.MP.
You are using a netbsd-4 kernel now, not a -current one. FYI in -current
which will become 5.0, multiprocessor support is included by default so it
is not an issue.
Fortunately, I have a copy of my previous "dmesg" and it shows that your
assessment is correct:
NetBSD 4.0 (GENERIC) #0: Sat Dec 15 22:25:31 PST 2007
When I installed NetBSD 4.0, I just got the latest iso, and installed. I
didn't know that I had to replace the generic kernel with a MP kernel
(or even that there were two different kernels). I don't recall
anything in the installation process that queried me about MP or my
kernel desires, so I didn't even know that I didn't know. :)
