I recently installed Fedora Core 6 x86_64. To my disbelief it installed the x86_64 SMP Kernel. My system runs just fine with that kernel, it is that I do not have a dual core processor nor do I have a multi-processor motherboard. Should I uninstall the SMP kernel and install the regular 64 bit kernel? :confused:

I have noticed a considerable performance increase since I upgraded from Fedora Core 6 i686 to Fedora Core 6 x86_64--most programs run 2 to 5 times faster. :cool:

If there is any doubt as to whether to install Fedora Core 6 i686 or Fedora Core 6 x86_64 then I recommend x86_64. :D

Hello;
Do you have an Intel chip with hyper-threading?

Hello:
Yep, seems odd?
What is the output of
cat /proc/cpuinfo

Hi Glenn & Seve.

Read somewhere yesterday that all FC6 kernels are SMP kernels. Not a problem. Use as is to your heart's content!

Hello Dan:
Yep, very good point, all the kernels whether iX86 or X86_64 are SMP enabled. No more separate kernels for each architecture.

Actually this has been this way since the first 2.6.18 updated kernel for FC5, so current 2.6.18 FC5 kernel is also SMP aware
