A couple of weeks ago I asked a question, regarding crunching time. My i7 needs 28 min's for a wu, the server status page shows much shorter crunching times.
The answer was 'Linux'.
OK, so I made my AMD Quadcore a dual boot system with XP and Kubuntu. Seems to work fine, crunching time is below 15 min, BUT:
BOINC uses only 3 of the 4 CPU's. Settings say use 100% of CPU-Time and 100% of Cores.
Since I'm a Linux newbe there might be a very simple solution for that, but I have no idea where to start.
Help is very appreciated.

I got a hint in a kubuntu forum.
A complete MB reset did the trick.

I'm actually using Kubuntu to do the compilation for the 32 and 64 bit linuxes now, so if anything it should play nicely with it.
