Hi,
I am trying to install vmware on top of FC6, first installed FC6 from dvd, later did su -c 'yum update' (followed instructions based on http://fedorasolved.org/server-solutions/vmserver-install/), after update rebooted. While checking kernel ver noticed following:
$ uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.22.2-42.fc6 #1 SMP Wed Aug 15 12:34:26 EDT 2007 i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux

Why it (yum update) is installing by default with SMP? My system config is as follows:
CPU: AMD athlon 64
RAM: 1GB
MB: MSI K8NGM2 (NVIDIA Geforce 6150/6100).

Please tell me how to remove SMP? if possible.

Thanks

All Fedora kernels are SMP-enabled since FC6.
Why would you want to remove SMP? What problems are you experiencing and what makes you think they are SMP-related?

Since my FC6 box has only 1 cpu, if no prob then i am fine with SMP. Need your help on vmware. My first question is
1. After installing vmware (based on instructions http://fedorasolved.org/server-solu...server-install/), could not find Applications > System Tools > VMware Server Console, managed to find and it is located at /usr/share/applications but when i executed it says 'starting vmware server console' and quits without any error msg.

2. How to install win xp / sun solrais on vmware, simple how-to on this will be of great help to me.

Thanks

This isn't a Fedora problem, try the VMWare forums at http://www.vmware.com/community/index.jspa
