Bug#248506: d-i b4: selection of correct CPU-specific kernel
from April 30, 2004
I sent a complete install report for this installation but wanted this
comment to be in a separate report.
My P-III and P4 both got installed with a 386 kernel. It would be
nice if d-i recognized that a 686 kernel would work on the P-III and
the 686-smp kernel would be needed to take advantage of hyperthreading
on the P-4. In other words, it would be good if d-i would install the
correct CPU-specific kernel.
I fully recognize that having multiple kernels would take up valuable
space on the installation medium. Maybe selection of a correct kernel
should explicitly be part of base-config.
