Default GENERIC.MP kernel failing to boot AMD dual-core system < 75% of the time

Hello,

I have an AMD dual-core system which (from my observations) needs the multiprocessor support in order to function "up to speed" (see this thread for example).

NetBSD comes with a multiprocessor kernel -> GENERIC.MP. Great, but the problem is that is fails to fully boot up < 75% of the time. It occurs right at the end of the boot (where the messages turn from green to white again - I don't know the technical name for that, if anyone could educate me). It says cpu1: CPU1 is running and that is it. It just freezes and doesn't continue. I have to push the reset button to reboot the system.

I am thinking of compiling my own kernel in the hopes of resolving this issue. Any suggestions?

Hello,

I build the -current/GENERIC kernel, and it works (the GENERIC kernel now includes SMP support automatically). I must admit that I am a little leery of using a kernel from -current due to its potential for instability, but it works and the 4.0 release doesn't (I tried building my own GENERIC.MP kernel from the stable branch, and it failed to consistently boot, too).

But, now the it uses both cores, it is blazingly fast. It's a real speed daemon! I mean it is really scary!! I can compile the GENERIC kernel in about 7 minutes (including all depends)!!!! NetBSD (with my SMP) is definitely faster than Linux (though I have no benchmarks to back up my claims).

I am looking forward to version 5 (I have my doubts that there will be a 4.1) which will incorporate SMP by default.

What are your hardware specs?
