As much as I would like to have SMP, there are a couple of tasks ahead of this:

- finalize v1 (it makes *no* sense to add SMP to ABI v0)
- migrate to 64bit (it makes *no* sense to add SMP to 32bit)

Then of course SMP must be finished. The fact, that it boots on (some) SMP-Systems, detects more than one CPU and can run some dedicated tasks on the other cores is still quite some steps away from real SMP.

In 2015 svn was moved to a new server. To quote a mail from Neil:

"The new repository is managed through trac, and as a first step in the changeover, existing developers will need to create accounts through the web interface at https://trac.aros.org (if you created an account on the previous trac deployment, that account may still be there, so you'll have an account already in that case).

You should use the same username as you currently use for SVN, but you may want to consider a new password (due to the accidental release of the hashed password file for a short time within the last few years)"

If this does still apply, I don't know.

The AROS TCP stack is ancient, which is also true for the includes. I guess MSG_NOSIGNAL was introduced in 1999, AmitCP is from when? 1994?

So if this is the only problem, just drop MSG_NOSIGNAL from the code or define it 0 in your own includes and see what happens.

But I guess, this is not the only problem.

Most code should not need Forbid. Use Semaphores, Messages etc to sync your own code.

Accessing system structures is a different thing. Use the proper API whenever possible.

How single structures will be protected in the future is still a moving target (well, at the moment there is no movement), at least it is not documented. And you never should use undocumented stuff .

And to sum it up, I just watched the commits and built a test-smp-aros once or twice to try it out. So all said above is my interpretation, I am no active contributor to smp development.

I guess, it is a little bit early for that. There will be some restrictions, like accessing the task list etc., but I don't know enough about the plans here.

I am pretty sure, not everything is decided yet.

Nothing .

Don't use Forbid or Disable (nothing new here).

And use more than one thread to do the work obviously and take care for parallel execution of the single threads. Nothing new here either, just some atomic cpu operations might not be able to sync your threads anymore. Semaphores are the right thing to do here anyways, even without smp.

But so far, there is no smp-aros available, at least none, which distributes tasks without special tweaking to other cpus.
