Subject: Should install SMP kernel automatically
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2004 13:16:04 +0100
Hi,

On my initial reading of the postinst script for the base-installer
package it should install an smp kernel on systems which have multiple
processors mentioned in dmesg. However I think that at no point in the
installer does it indicate thats its installing such a kernel. 

Your bug report indicates that you are running the smp kernel, if you
didn't install this yourself then we have some reason for concern and
should take a look.

Cheers,

Rob

Subject: Recent kernels all have SMP support built-in

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Hi!

As recent Linux kernels in Debian all have SMP support built-in, I am
closing this bug report, as there is no need to install a specific
kernel version for system with more than one processor.

Cheers,
