Thanks Eric and Simon,

I installed 2.4.9-31SGI_1.1smp kernel and everything was OK. I just
noticed one difference, with the newer 2.4.9-34smp kernel, I used to see
4 CPUs (using top) on our server which is a Compaq ML530G2. This server
have 2 CPUs only. But due to Intel Hyper-Threading technology on the new
Xeon 2.4 GHz processor, the 2.4.9-34smp kernel treats it as 4 CPUs.

After I installed 2.4.9-31SGI_1.1smp and rebooted I only could see 2
CPUs which is equal to the physical CPUs count. 

I am going to install kernel-smp-2.4.9-34SGI_XFS_1.1.i686.rpm and
hopefully I will see 4 CPUs. Some how it supposed to be faster with the
2 CPUs treated as 4 CPUs (?). 

Thanks for your help and the new RPMs.

Ok, they are there now, in

Sorry it took so long to get them out there, this sort of fell through
the cracks.

Note that they're contributed, and have not been tested by SGI.

Thanks Simon!
