Default kernel update for Dual Xeon with HT

I think you have to do this:

Give this command to find the available SMP (multiprocessor kernels):

apt-cache search kernel-image | grep smp

Choose this linux kernel for use with dual xeon:


Linux kernel install with this command:

apt-get install kernel-image-2.6.8-12-em64t-p4-smp

This commands reads the installed linux kernel:
uname -a

Remove the not necessary current kernel:

dpkg --purge --force-remove-essential kernel-image-2.6.8-2-386
(or other current kernel according the result of command uname -a)

Reboot your system.

This will give you full support for your dual xeon system with hyperthreading as well.
