Description Andy Hudson 2005-11-25 19:54:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-GB; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20051010 Firefox/1.0.7 (Ubuntu package 1.0.7)

Description of problem:
I installed FC5T1 onto a Dell Latitude D610 laptop. For some reason the installer installed the SMP kernel - there is definitely only one CPU in this laptop and no hyperthreading. When booting into Fedora, system gets as far as probing the IDE0 ports and then reboots - endless cycle

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC5T1 kernel-2.6.14*

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora Core 5 T1 with default settings, deleting all Linux partitions and dual booting with Windows.
2.Assigned Windows as default boot target for GRUB
3.Finish installation and reboot.

Actual Results:  System tries to load SMP kernel, gets as far as IDE0 probe and then reboots.

Expected Results:  System should have loaded regular kernel and booted into FC5T1 firstboot

This is due to the processor supporting NX, which means that we want the SMP
kernel to take advantage of that.

Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-12-01 07:24:35 UTC
Will be fixed in test2. (We're going back to the way things were in FC4 and
earlier -- this was an ill-concieved idea)
