I have downloaded the Blag1000 ISO and installed it successfully but I was wondering if there was a kernal update for an SMP dual athlon kernal? and what is the difference between the standard smp kernal?

Thanks!

Yes. It is available. You can get it a couple different ways:

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install kernel-smp#2.4.22-1.2199.nptl


The "2199" version is the most recent release from Fedora. Version 2188 is on the CD.

You can also FTP it:

ftp://ftp.blagblagblag.org/pub/BLAG/linux/10000/en/os/i386/BLAG/RPMS.errata/kernel-smp-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.athlon.rpm

A standard kernel will run on a dual athlon system, but only 1 CPU will be used. With the kernel-smp kernel, it'll use both CPUs. The version with "athlon" in the name is optimized for the althon...

Jeff,

Thanks for the info. I was able to install the smp kernal but in using the command "apt-get install kernel-smp#2.4.22-1.2199.nptl" how can I be certain that the Athlon version of the kernal has been uploaded---"kernel-smp-2.4.22-1.2199.nptl.athlon.rpm"

Thanks

Code:
rpm -q kernel --queryformat %{ARCH}


or maybe too:
Code:
rpm -q kernel-smp --queryformat %{ARCH}
