Planning to install FreeBSD 9.0-RELEASE amd64.

Should I re-compile kernel after installation for multiple CPU cores support? or SMP-kernel comes in default installation?

What do you think? What percentage of 64-bit machines do you think have only a single core these days? – David Schwartz Oct 20 '12 at 1:06

It should support SMP by default, and has been since freebsd 3/4/5. I don't even find smp as an option in the kernel config part of the handbook, so its probably something all kernels will have.
