Silly Ubuntu!

I was wondering why my frame rate in UT2004 seemed to be really slow all of the time. So I got bored one night and took a look at the CPU meter.

Huh, that's strange... there should be more than one CPU in this computer. Silly old Ubuntu installed the non-SMP kernel instead of the SMP kernel when it came up. Grar! Luckily it was just another command to get it running.

Edit: Fuck yeah, that's the framerate I wanted.

Ubuntu...
I'm not really advanced enough to create a partition and its not just my computer (i know you may say that if im not advanced enough to create a partition i shouldnt be using linux, but im scared of it!) but i have 20cd's of it! I just wanted to know if its easy to use it in conjunction with Windows, and what happens if both are installed, can you set a default (so parents dont have to change settings!)

cheers

Yeah, I dual boot between XP and Ubuntu on my rig. I just had to resize my existing NTFS partition, which isn't for the faint of heart -- I would consider buying a new hard drive and installing Linux on that.
