Description Gurdeep Singh 2003-03-24 14:39:08 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0; Hotbar 220.127.116.11) Description of problem: We are installing AS2.1 on IBM intellistation M Pro using kickstart. System is having single CPU. Installation completes successfully. On reboot system tries to boot SMP kernel by default, which hangs the system. We need to manually select kernel version from boot menu, boot the system & make changes to grub.conf/lilo.conf. Why system is trying to boot SMP kernel by default? Help is much appreciated as its taking lot cycles to make manual changes after fresh installs. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.kickstart IBM M pro system with single CPU 2.Installation completes & on reboot tries to load SMP kernel. 3. Actual Results: system hangs. Expected Results: system should not boot SMP kernel by default for single CPU machine. Additional info:

What processor and chipset is in this box? Apparently it has the 'HT' flag set, meaning it has hyperthreading support. You probably need to disable the hyperthreading support in your BIOS if the kernel hangs.
Comment 2 Lew Newby 2003-03-24 18:50:30 UTC
The IBM systems that we are installing this are 1.4 GHz P4 systems that do not have HT support. Lew Newby email@example.com
Comment 3 Lew Newby 2003-03-24 19:17:19 UTC
Ok correction. THe exact details are an IBM Intellistation M Pro Model 6849 with a single Pentium 4 1.5 GHz processor and an Intel 850 chipset.
Comment 4 Lew Newby 2003-03-27 21:08:18 UTC
Could we gt the priority and severity on this issue increased?
Comment 5 Uwe Beck 2003-08-06 21:17:28 UTC
The same problem with a ASUS Hyper-Threading Mainboard and Intel P4 2,4GHz. The P4 2,4 GHz prozessor does not support Hyper-Threading! This problem was fixed in Quaterly Update Q2. Uwe Beck firstname.lastname@example.org

please attach kernel messages (dmesg or serial output) from the systems and /proc/cpuinfo
