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
machines anyway.

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.

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-02-06 21:42:29 UTC
we scan the BIOS areas for the Intel Multiprocessor Spec capabilities table.
not easy to fix, but may be better in 7.1
