    how can i verify that my kernel is supporting SMP configuration?

    dmesg shows following:

    ACPI: Local APIC address 0xfee00000
    ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x00] lapic_id[0x03] enabled)
    Processor #3 6:8 APIC version 17
    ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x01] lapic_id[0x00] enabled)
    Processor #0 6:8 APIC version 17
    WARNING: NR_CPUS limit of 1 reached. Processor ignored.


    Using ACPI (MADT) for SMP configuration information

    Is SMP enabled in your current kernel's configuration file (normally under /boot)?

    I've already got it: top, type 1 to switch the CPUs. If SMP kernel is installed you will see your CPUs, if not only one is displayed.

    apt-get install kernel-image*-smp ;)
