I have a Lenovo A10 laptop with an ARM Cortex RK3188 quad-core processor, after upgrading from Ubuntu 13.04 to Ubuntu 13.10, I realized it was slower than previously, after further inspection, I realized that only one processor was enabled, how do I enable all of the processors? What could be the possible consequences of enabling all the processors on the OS?
Enabling all cores in ARM Cortex RK3188 quad-core processor
To install all processors to your laptop you will have to search for "system" in Software Center, and install System Profiler and Benchmark.
Then run it from the Launcher, type "system" if it isn't there already, and you will see a detailed list of hardware that you can expand further by category. You will see all the processors and you will have to install all of them.
This tool also allows you to run benchmarks to compare how your system performs relative to other common computers.
There are no consequences of installing all the processors on your OS because they will start to run only is required. When is not required they will be in "stand by"
