First of all i installed Suse on my Hyper Threading machine and the smp
kernel was installed. I then upgraded to the latest bug fix kernel with
the "rpm -ivh" switch. A few days later that kernel had uninstalled

and or an error that they have a bad signature. But when i install them
the first time they work. Its only after a day or two they get corrupt.
I then run "rpm --rebuildb" and can sometimes install the rpm.
Is this a hardware incompatibility problem or a smp kernel problem ? I
am using an intel cpu with a Asus P4S800-MX motherboard.
