           Summary: Kernel selection during installation defaulting to 2.6.x
                    bigsmp instead of default kernel
           Product: openSUSE 10.3
           Version: Beta 2
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: openSUSE 10.3
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: Installation
        AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

On two different, single processor machines, 10.3 beta 2 has selected the
-bigsmp version of the kernel to install, rather than the default one. This
causes problems because the -bigsmp version does not seem to have been compiled
with the same modules as the default one (pcnet32 is missing for starters). Why
is the -bigsmp version being selected on machines that only have a single core
processor?

The two machines are:
VMWare VMPlayer (Windows XP Host) configured in single processor mode.

AMD Athlon 2600+ (Barton core)
Epox 8RDA3+ mobo

Also, upon switching back to the default version after installation breaks the
bootsplash screen (boots in text mode).
