Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5499
Installer incorrectly detects Tomcat I as dual processor

Similiar to the bug in the 6.0 installer. Tomcat I single
proc board (only one socket) is detected as SMP motherboard
during upgrade. SMP kernel is installed and booted as
Interesting note: I was not affected by the 6.0 installer
bug on a clean install. I had, however, recently flashed the
BIOS on the motherboard to the latest version from Tyan.
Maybe this is BIOS revision dependent?
This is a known BIOS bug. The tomcat tends to have SMP tables in it
when its not an SMP box
This is out of out hands to take care of as the motherboard is providing the
installer with incorrect information.
