    Install smp kernel


    I have already installed fedora core 3 in my system.

    how can i install the smp kernel also along with this?
    i have downloaded the smp kerenel rpm

    do i just install it by using an rpm -ivh command? or is there anything more that i should do?

    You can use rpm to install it
    You also have all the needed modules for your hardware ?
    (Like NVidia driver module ? )

    Be sure to check your Grub configuration.
    It should have an entry for your SMP kernel.
    If not, you'll need to edit the grub config.

    If you use Synaptic or Apt-Get to install the smp kernel, the grub config should be modified by those apps.

    i installed it and had to add the info in the grub.conf

    i had to do a mkinitrd command since i was using a customized smp kernel rpm to get the initrd image in the /boot

    after that i rebooted and is working fine.

    i have one doubt , if i had downloaded the rpm from the net would the initrd image get created automatically?

    could you explain in simle terms what the mkinitrd command does since i read the man page but just got only a very vague idea of what it does

    thanks

    If you have a dual-processor system (or a hyperthreaded Pentium), the SMP kernel *should* have been installed by default.
