    Hi Colinux friends,
    i want to run colinux two times as system services on XPsp2 startup.
    ./colinux-daemon.exe --install-service Debian -c c:\\opt\\coLinux\\debian\\config.xml
    ./colinux-daemon.exe --install-service Debian2 -c c:\\opt\\coLinux\\debian2\\config.xml

    that works.

    But the two instancesof cl are on one core! tricks like
    imagecfg -a 0x1 c:\opt\coLinux\colinux-daemon.exe  -c c:\opt\\coLinux\debian\config.xml
    imagecfg -a 0x2 c:\opt\coLinux\colinux-daemon.exe  -c c:\opt\\coLinux\debian2\config.xml

    won't work, same result->both on one core

    What should i do, to have one coLinux on one core

      Colinux hangs all times on the first CPU.

      You can set an environemt to disable this feature.  I'm not know, why it exist. It can be unstable your system, I'm  afraid. Be carefully and save all your datas before you try it at first time.

      With 'COLINUX_NO_SMP_WORKAROUND=Y' coLinux runs on all processors.
