Description Riaan van Niekerk 2007-01-23 05:24:49 UTC
On the above page, various kernel versions and their functions are described. I 
see the following omissions:
- kernel-largesmp (and -devel) : support for more than 8 CPUs on x86_64, more 
than 54 CPUs on POWER, and more than 256 CPUs on IA64
- kernel-PAE
- kernel-xen

(as seen in http://www.redhat.com/f/summitfiles/presentation/May31/Core%20OS/
Riek_RHEL%20Update.sxi)

Also, kernel-hugemem is RHEL 3 only (e.g. deprecated) and can be removed IMHO. 
This section should probably be rewritten to take into account the reduced 
amount of kernel packages (e.g. no more kernel-smp) as well as the new 
capabilities of kernel packages (e.g. smp-capable "kernel" package)

Comment 1 Riaan van Niekerk 2007-01-23 05:30:39 UTC
I logged the same bug twice by mistake (after getting an "Incorrect product 
name" after submitting). When I try to close this bug as a dupe, I get the error
"You tried to change the Status field from NEW to CLOSED, but only the owner or 
submitter of the bug, or a sufficiently empowered user, may change that field."

This bug is a dupe of 223933, please close
