I was told that Fedora's latest build for the Power ppc64 processor would support SMT=8 , if you "err ... um" have machine with a processor that support that SMT=8 !!! This is not an announcement.

And I can't help thinking PowerVC would remove all this work, once the new version arrives that support my ... umm err! new machine!!
I can tell you know that this was a POWER8 S824... [More]
