Thank you for quick reply.
Is there any documentation as how to use grub to boot barrelfish?
While i was going through mail-archive i noticed that barrelfish uses only
one physical core. but when i boot it on more then one core in Qemu how
would i know that it has started on all the cores specified (and how do i
specify number of core to boot exactly)?
