Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 26352
fisher guest on vmware installs smp kernel by default
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:14 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.75 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18 i686)
vmware: host o/s rh6.2 guest o/s fisher
vmware version is 2.0.3-799
install program somehow selects and installs smp kernel for default
physical machine has 1 processor, and i don't think vmware emulates smp
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1. just install fisher on a linux-guest virtual machine in vmware
great job on the "not-dot-oh" releases. i hope this is helpful or at least
not a waste of your time.
Matt how do we determine how many processors exist?
We do not officially support vmware, but this might be something simple to fix.
we scan the BIOS areas for the Intel Multiprocessor Spec capabilities table.
not easy to fix, but may be better in 7.1
Have you had better sucess with the later beta Wolverine?
