OS/2 and eComStation eComStation 2.0 beta 1 is available for eCS Software Subscribers. The most significant updates on this beta version are: SNAP/ENT, the special licensed version of SNAP by Serenity is in there, we boot SNAP directly from CD-ROM; bootable JFS, this version is able to install on bootable JFS volumes; ACPI, this version installs and detects ACPI.

Bootable JFS and ACPI support

Seems that bootable JFS changes the performance of eComStation significantly: What about ACPI? Can I use DualCore CPUs now? (Ancient OS2APIC doesn't work on my computer) And what about HyperThreading? My company purchased 10 eComStation SMP kernels (it was declared that eCS SMP kernel supports no more than 64 CPUs). I don't need support of 64 processors! 8-) Give me support of 4!!

You need to open a support ticket. Contact the reseller you got eCom from.

I agree with Zizban, you must have a problem. I have used SMP eCS 1.0 Beta, 1.0,1.1 and 1.2 on machines with PentiumPros, PentiumIIs, PentiumIIIs and curently PentiumIV Xeons with no problems. I have not tried the new ACPI, but I will. I want to test the HyperThreading myself. I have read some articles, that said (on SMP machines) HyperThreading is sometimes nonbeneficial.
