Description Tim Skirvin 2005-01-04 15:31:22 UTC
Description of problem:

RH Desktop complains and sleeps for 10 seconds if you boot on a
dual-processor system, even though the web page
(http://www.redhat.com/solutions/industries/education/products/) says
seems to indicate that it should support dual-processor system.

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

How reproducible:

Every time you boot, 

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

At the very least, I don't want the 10-second warning.

Additional info:

The relevant text says that there's two options for academics:

1.  Desktop Academic.  Doesn't list many real details.
2.  AS Academic.  Says ">2 processors".  

If the text on the web page is wrong, then a) it should be fixed, and
b) I want appropriate licenses to match what I I already paid for.

Reassigning to product management.

Comment 3 Barry K. Nathan 2005-01-05 13:50:09 UTC
Standard (non-academic) desktop appears to support only one CPU, for
what that's worth:

Comment 4 Suzanne Hillman 2005-01-13 20:16:46 UTC
Could you please include the text of the warning in question?

Comment 5 Tim Skirvin 2005-01-18 16:14:40 UTC
WARNING: Red Hat Desktop release 3 (Taroon) requires no more than 1 CPUs to run
as a supported confguration. (2 detected)
Normal startup will continue in 10 seconds.

Comment 6 Tim Skirvin 2005-01-18 16:15:28 UTC
Note: I had to transcribe that, so any typos are mine.

Comment 7 Tim Skirvin 2005-01-28 17:06:17 UTC
So: anything changed yet?

Comment 9 David Lawrence 2006-03-10 01:24:54 UTC
NEEDINFO_PM status has been obsoleted. Changing status to NEEDINFO and assigning
to riek@redhat.com
