Description Marcos F. Villa 2003-07-26 12:25:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686) Gecko/20030530 Galeon/1.3.5

Description of problem:
After following the installation I notice that the kernel selected in grub was
2.4.20...SMP. Pretty weird when I only have 1 processor. Probably it is because
the velocity of the micro or maybe because the fsb velocity.

My machine configuration is:

Processor: P4 2.4Ghz 800Mhz
Motherboard: Intel D865-BGF
Hard Disk: WD 60Gb 7200
RAM Memory: 512 Mb DDR 333Mhz (distributed in 2 slots)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the system and notice that it is configured to run with an SMP kernel
when there's no more than 1 processor

Actual Results:  The system boots with the SMP kernel as default

Expected Results:  The system shouldn't boot with the SMP kernel because there's
no more than 1 processor

Does this processor support hyperthreading?
