Multiple CPUs not working

When you compile BIND make sure you supply the --enable-threads option.

Also make sure you have an SMP kernel running. If Linux: cat /proc/cpuinfo.

Subject: Multiple CPUs not working

Hello All,

I read a while back about someone having problems getting named to recognize
their DUAL CPU's ( or more ).

I too am having the same problem in that logs say named started with 1 CPU
I in fact have 2 CPUS ( Xeons ).

I tried the -n 2  option but still says 1 cpu being used. In docs it says it
will try to auto-detect your CPU environment and add them occordingly so
-n 2 would not work as it should have worked auto-magically.

Anyone get this to work with multiple CPUs?
