Package details

Summary: Linux Kernel for desktop use with i686 and less than 4GB RAM

The kernel package contains the Linux kernel (vmlinuz), the core of your
Mageia operating system. The kernel handles the basic functions
of the operating system: memory allocation, process allocation, device
input and output, etc. This kernel is compiled for desktop use, single or
multiple i686 processor(s)/core(s) and less than 4GB RAM (usually 3-3.5GB
detected, if you need/want to use all 4GB or more, install kernel-server),
using HZ_1000, voluntary preempt, CFS cpu scheduler and cfq i/o scheduler.

This kernel relies on in-kernel smp alternatives to switch between up & smp
mode depending on detected hardware. To force the kernel to boot in single
processor mode, use the "nosmp" boot parameter.
