[vbox-dev] SVN and Multiple CPUs

Hey Guys,

Yesterday I update my SVN tree and build it on Debian Lenny.
I was surprised to see a revamp on the configuration GUI and the
option to run the VM with more than one CPU.
I tried it on my system (dual core AMD 64) running a backtrack live
image configured as Linux 2.6.

The time the machine booted up my laptop started beeping like I've
never heard before. It had hanged and I could only turn it off with
the power button.

So, this brings on my question: is v-SMP up to Alpha/Beta status and I
had a bad lucky running it or it is still broken beyond any usage?

On a side note: "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv start" complains it couldn't load
vboxnetadp and tells me to look at dmesg, but it seens the module was
not build.
I didn't bother looking at the log but I might take a look if its
failing to build it for some reason.
