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

Reassigning to product management.
Standard (non-academic) desktop appears to support only one CPU, for
what that's worth:
Could you please include the text of the warning in question?
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.
Note: I had to transcribe that, so any typos are mine.
So: anything changed yet?
