Upgraded to 6.2.15 the other night and since then BOINC is not recognising that I have 2 processors - where it did previously

I am running MacOS 10.4.11 on a MacBookPro with Intel Core Duo.

Have set the preference to use 2 processors, but it doesn't seem to recognise the setting. Running the benchmarks only shows 1 CPU (?!?)

Sat 16 Aug 23:48:28 2008|| 4630 integer MIPS (Dhrystone) per CPU

Any advice?

I have excatly the same problem. I have also informed the BOINC developers. I recommend you to switch back to 5.10.45.

I updated this morning and it still recognizes both of them in my iMac.
