2.7 amd64 Desktop issues ( mouse, RAM, perfomance etc. )

I was trying to configure

 2.7-DEVELOPMENT DragonFly v2.7.3.21.gc791f-DEVELOPMENT #14: Mon May
10 10:25:53 UTC 2010

as a desktop and faced the following problems?

1) Only 1 processor detected - Is SMP not supported on amd64?

2) Only 3GB of 4GB RAM is detected. Is there a limit?

3) If there is a cd in the tray it keeps on rotating for even without
being able to eject

4) Xorg is dead slow. I tried wmaker, enlightenment, flux box and the
default thing that come with X

a) Mouse cursor does not move when mouse is moved initially and then
it moves very fast to update to its final position.

I have no moused enabled and In xorg.conf I have

Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier  "Mouse0"
       Driver      "mouse"
       Option      "Protocol" "auto"
       Option      "Device" "/dev/ums0"
       Option      "ZAxisMapping" "4 5 6 7"

The full xorg.conf log is here


b) Typing in stuff on xterm or anywhere else like this mail takes a
long time to appear on screen

c) Screen redraw takes a very long time

Should I be using the i386 port instead?

The dmesg is here


Also will flash in firefox be available on the amd64 port?

What about qemu? the pkgsrc build failed because of policykit. What
emulator softwares work best on dfly especially the amd64 port?

The top command gives



ps aux
