it doesn't matter what pts is written for, when the kernel is UP.
The kernel used was SMP supported.
A user at the german forum "www.ubuntuusers.de" did some tests with his Lenovo T60 (same hardware as the one in the Phoronix-test) on Ubuntu 8.10. His scores are dramatically better than the ones from the Phoronix test :
LAME-MP3 : 60.62s
OGG : 35.05s
FLAC : 28.82s
WAVPACK : 31.22s
FFMPEG : 33.76s
SQLITE : 24.21s
SCIMARK (composite) : 290.28 Mflops
Tandem-XML (write) : 54.22s
How can it be that two systems with the same hard -and software got so different test results?
trooper09: I can assure you both cores were enabled and that cpuinfo reported both cores.
