Description Jim Paradis 2004-03-19 18:00:47 EST
Description of problem: The installer installs both the SMP and UP
AMD64 kernels on ia32e systems.  This is incorrect; it should install
the single ia32e image on such systems.

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL3 U2 on an ia32e system
2. Reboot after install finishes
3. System will crash on reboot
Actual results: The AMD64 kernels are installed on the ia32 system,
causing crash on boot

Expected results: The single ia32e kernel should be installed on an
ia32e system; this single image takes care of both UP and SMP.

lwoodman told me this the other day and then didn't file it... fixed
in CVS, will be in the final U2 build.

bpeck -- I don't see this with re0330 in a quick test here.  If you
still see it with 0330 or later, let me know the machine
Comment 7 Suresh Siddha 2004-04-07 16:42:18 EDT
I installed re0330 on couple of different systems and I don't see 
this problem.
Comment 8 Bill Peck 2004-04-07 17:36:00 EDT
On the NEC mumble we have, it still installs the SMP kernel and when
it boots it panics. This is the same behaviour as the HP mumble.

On the Intel mumble it installs both but booting the smp kernel does
not cause the system to panic.

rpm -q --queryformat '%{arch}\n' kernel-smp kernel
Comment 9 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-11 14:10:53 EDT
Bill -- which tree are you installing from?
Comment 10 Bill Peck 2004-04-16 17:54:38 EDT
sorry - busy week trying to catch up...

re0415.0 is installing as we speak.. I'll update tomorrow
Comment 11 Bill Peck 2004-04-19 09:50:44 EDT
0415.1 does the same thing.  Installs both SMP and UP.  SMP is for
x86_64 and UP is for ia32e.  This is on Machine necmumble.lab
Comment 12 Jeremy Katz 2004-04-19 16:16:12 EDT
Hrmmm, doesn't happen on the DP box that lwoodman had (using 0416.1,
but should be no difference).  Can you get the nec box into the
installer for me to poke at at some point tomorrow?
Comment 13 Jeremy Katz 2004-06-09 17:27:57 EDT
This was pilot error (kernel-smp was explicitly requested in the ks.cfg)
