Red Hat Blues
Scribbled by Nathan
"About Redhat 8. I sure did like all the past releases and thought that the
redhat 7.3 was the best, I do so believe that very much now. I still favor
7.3 mainly because Redhat decided to not including the smp kernel into their
distro which then forces me to put the breaks on installing redhat 8 since
both of my only linux machines require the smp kernel in order to boot
completely. Many people do believe that the smp kernel is just for those
with more then one CPU, boy are they wrong. Thanks to Redhat's decision I'm
now officially stuck with 7.3 unless 8.1 includes the smp kernel. Why does
my systems require the smp kernel instead of the normal kernel you may ask.
To put it simply my systems will not boot any services at all without that
kernel and I have no idea why. It has something to do with the hardware. My
point is redhat basically screwed us people whose machines require that
kernel type such as those with multiple CPUs and no one wants an OS that
isn't using all of their hardware on the machine.
"Anyway I just wanted to share my complaint about what redhat 8 is missing
that is very important and your newsletter has saved my butt more then a few
times at least, So keep up with the great tutorials! :)"
