i did not really get the opengl relation of your question

Make sure you are using an SMP kernel.

I used to use Redhat 7.2 on an SMP (switched over to the new sorcery linux distro) and if I recall, it states if you are using SMP mode when you login. Also, when you run Redhat 7.2 and it detected SMP during installation, you should have 2 Boot options in GRUB.... ex.

Redhat Linux 7.2
Redhat Linux 7.2 UP

where UP stands for uniprocessor or 1 CPU (non-smp).

If you see non of these things, then you don't have SMP installed and working. You may need to check your hardware and verify that the SMP is enabled and functional.
