Hi All,

Does any one know of a document how to develope an SMP kernel on PowerPC
based platform ?

And if any one can please explain the boot process ?
I have CPU #0 initializing the whole system then CPU #1 is given bus
grant and executes code from the eeprom which is basically only
branching to address 0x0 ! Is this enough ? what CPU #1 should do next ?
