Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243985
"uname -a" shows SMP, even on non-SMP-capable boards/CPU's
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
Calling uname -a on old PIII- or AMD-CPUs shows "... SMP ..." as feature, and
this is not right!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Linux ............ 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 #1 SMP Wed May 23 22:35:01 EDT 2007 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
No SMP flag
The same bug on FC6 too.
Fedora's i686 kernels are compiled with SMP support enabled. The display of
"SMP" refers to the feature of the kernel, not of the system.
