Description of problem:
At this URL the kernel-SMP statement is confusing:
"kernel-smp â Contains the kernel for multi-processor systems. The following are
the key features:
* Multi-processor support
* Support for more than 4 GB of RAM (up to 32 GB for x86)
Although kernel-smp supports up to 32 GB for x86 architectures, Red Hat
recommends use of kernel-hugemem for memory configurations higher than 16 GB."
Second bullet point needs to read:
Support for more than 4 GB of RAM (up to 16 GB for x86)
The NOTE needs to be changed to the following:
"Although kernel-smp theoretically supports up to 32 GB for 32 bit x86
architectures, Red Hat will not support the use of more than 16 GB of RAM. Use
of kernel-hugemem is required for memory configurations higher than 16 GB."
These changes are in place in the current version of the documentation
