Description Michael Fulbright 2002-10-04 15:57:22 UTC
This occurs because the kernel-smp package is installed on your system, and your
processor does not have a matching kernel-smp package in Red Hat Linux 8.0.

The workaround is to boot into your existing system, remove the kernel-smp
package, and attempt the upgrade again.

NOTE: You will not have support for SMP once you upgrade.

Is it possible to create an smp kernel using the 2.4.18-14 src.rpm? If so, how?

This is fixed in CVS

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
