    And this is of course mirrored in places like My Computer.

    Is the 11.2 kernel not seeing (and worse: not using) my hyperthreading or is there some other explanation?

    Henk, mine shows everything normal, on both systems. If it's all over the place, could it be a degrading condition of the CPU?

    Fact is:

    All openSUSE kernels since 10.2 have SMP activated by default, the last version still having an extra "kernel-smp" was 10.1.

    @Knurpht
    I do not think something being wrong in the hardware. I am now constanly rebooting between 10.3 and 11.2 and both are very consistent in what they say: two on 10.3 and one on 11.2.

    @Akoellh
    Kernel in my 10.3: 2.6.22.19-0.4-default.
    Kernel in my 11.2 RC2: 2.6.31.5-0.1-desktop.
    All rather normal I think. I originaly installed 11.2 RC1 from DVD and went to RC2 with zypper dup. This would give me the correct kernel would it?

    Same system running 10.3:
    Code:
    CONFIG_SMP=y
    # CONFIG_X86_BIGSMP is not set
    CONFIG_SUSPEND_SMP=y
    CONFIG_X86_FIND_SMP_CONFIG=y
    CONFIG_X86_SMP=y
    and 11.2
    Code:
    CONFIG_USE_GENERIC_SMP_HELPERS=y
    CONFIG_X86_32_SMP=y
    CONFIG_SMP=y
    CONFIG_X86_BIGSMP=y
    CONFIG_PM_SLEEP_SMP=y
    CONFIG_SCSI_SAS_HOST_SMP=y
    CONFIG_VIDEO_VP27SMPX=m
    Thanks for looking into this.

    Just installed "kernel-desktop" on my 11.2 test installation (i586, x86_64 is still updating to rc2) and it shows me both CPUs.

    Although "only" a VM, the cpus are "passed through", so my result is accurate and as expected.

    The kernel itself is certainly not the problem.

    P.S.

    A simple "uname -a" will also confirm SMP support.

    Please post the output of 'dmesg | grep CPU'.
