rpm -Fvh kernel removes kernel-smp
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:56:58 EDT
When you have kernel and kernel-smp installed on a freshly installed system, and
do rpm -Fvh on the 2.4.20-19.9 UP kernel, the kernel-smp kernel is gone afterwards.
(the reason for doing the kernels one at a time is to avoid the change of boot
order you'll often get afterwards now).

Yup. Install kernels with -i, not -F, if you don't like the behavior.
