I have installed the Suse 10.1 beta9 on my Inspiron 8500 and it comes
up that the smp kernel is loaded instead of the default i386 kernel.
Both are shown in /lib/modules. Boot log shows smp kernel loaded. How
can I get it to load the default kernel instead of the smp kernel?
Install the default kernel, then modify lilo.conf as appropriate.

Could not find any istall procedure or howto. Did try to rename
the /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.16-18-default to vmlinuz but now it comes up with
no /lib/modules/2.6.16-18-default/modules.dep, even though it is there
so guess I will just reinstall 10.0 and try a 10.1 rc1 when it comes
out. Could not find where the .Trash-user file was to recover the file,
seem to be a deep dark secret that not even Google knows about.


Isn't your laptop an Intel processor with hyperthreading. If it is so, I believe that it thinks it has two processors, thus it is loading the correct kernel. this is a side effect of the hyperthreading I think.
