I was able to get hwloc to install quite easily on SuSE -
Configure it to install to /usr/local/bin
Actually, the topic of hyperthreading is interesting, and we should
discuss it please.
Hyperthreading is supposedly implemented better and 'properly' on
Nehalem - I would be interested to see some genuine
performance measurements with hyperthreading on/off on your machine Gilbert.
Also you don;t need to reboot and change BIOS settings - there was a
rather niofty technique on this list I think,
where you disable every second CPU in Linux - which has the same
effect as switching off hyperthreading.
Maybe you could try it?
