Description Joachim Backes 2007-06-13 08:53:59 UTC
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):
2.6.21-1.3194.fc7


How reproducible:
each time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.uname -a
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Linux ............ 2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 #1 SMP Wed May 23 22:35:01 EDT 2007 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Expected results:
No SMP flag

Additional info:
The same bug on FC6 too.

Comment 1 Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2007-06-13 11:51:24 UTC
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.
