Description djaeger 1998-12-11 22:59:28 UTC
I need to recompile my kernel since I have dual processor
machines. (Frankly, I think this should be supported without
recompilation by now).

I made a new installation of RedHat 5.2 and added the
kernel source and kernel header patches version 2.0.36-1.

I ran xconfig and edit the Makefile to enable SMP. After
compilation (including modules and modules_install) and
updating lilo my computer now boots as RedHat 5.2
kernel revision 2.0.0 instead of 2.0.36 (as before). Since
the modules get installed as 2.0.36 no modules are

Fix:  I need help on this one. Thanks.

We are considering for upcoming releases the possibility of shipping
an additional kernel enable for SMP support but no decision has been
made as of yet. With the upcoming release of 2.2 kernel this should be
an easier process.
