Force processes to a specific processor (processor affinity)
In OpenSUSE 11.1, you can use the taskset command to force a process to a single processor or set of processors. Some race condition bugs in Wine may be helped by fixing Wine to a single processor. To do so, use:
taskset -c 0 PROGRAM
The "0" is the processor to use (starting from zero). Another possibility includes "-c 0,2-3" which would run the program on the first, third, and fourth processors.
