I've have recently been installing the 2.6 kernel as an rpm downloaded from
Today I tried upgrading from 2.6-test7 to 2.6.test9 and received the
[root@localhost kernels]# rpm -Uvh kernel-2.6.0-0.test9.1.67.i586.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
kernel = 2.4.20-18.9 is needed by (installed)
...so I tried installed the 'SMP' version
which installed OK.
Can anybody give me an educated answer as to what the difference is between
these 2 rpms.?
What is 'SMP' an abbreviation of.?
