I believe that the kernel is built with smp enabled and you do not need to
use a variation marked as smp when running FC6. One kernel for single and
multiprocessors from now on.

Yes, I know. I was stating that yum *didn't* upgrade my kernel, possibly
because of this. I was left with the kernel-smp from fc5 still installed
and running and yum telling me there were no more updates. I had to find a
mirror, download the correct kernel RPM and install it using RPM

FC5 x86_64 > FC6 x86_64

I am not sure I follow what you are saying.

I was upgrading an x86_64 machine at the time...I actually meant i386 - yum didn't upgrade my fc5 smp kernel to a fc6 kernel when going from fc5 to fc6


I run a dual core athlon and have been running FC5 x86_64 since FC5 came
out.
I have _never_ seen a 64 bit smp kernel in FC5.  Yes, they had an smp
kernel for the i686 kernel initially, but that was also removed long
ago.

If you had not updated fully and still had the smp kernel installed/in
use,  it is possible that the upgrade might fail that way.  It should
not have failed if you had the FC5 installation fully updated before you
started the upgrade.

It was...
