Doing an update via yum (I know! But it saves bandwidth...) I got the FC6 SMP kernel headers and no upgrade to the kernel-smp package...so I had to manually install the kernel i686 RPM...


I believe that the kernel is built with smp enabled and you do not need to use a variation marked as smp when running FC6. One kernel for single and multiprocessors from now on.

Yes, I know. I was stating that yum *didn't* upgrade my kernel, possibly because of this. I was left with the kernel-smp from fc5 still installed and running and yum telling me there were no more updates. I had to find a mirror, download the correct kernel RPM and install it using RPM

FC5 x86_64 > FC6 x86_64
