Have had a box, an older AMD athlon 1.4ghz, single core, single cpu running 1.2.3 forever and it's been fantastic. Went to do a clean wipe and install of pfSense 2.0-RELEASE, and all was fine, until I get to the last screen where it lets you choose the kernel. There is no uniprocessor kernel option! Only SMP!
this screen (not my picture, I WISH I had that option) -
However, for me, the top option is simply not there!! I can only pick from the bottom 3.
I've tried everything. Quick install, custom install, running the live cd then choosing to install, etc. Always the same three kernels to choose from. The image I'm using is pfSense-2.0-RELEASE-i386.iso.gz - I've tried versions from three different mirrors to be sure. Tried the amd64 version thinking they maybe accidentally got mislabeled. As I said before 1.2.3 installed and ran flawlessly. Has uniproc support been deprecated? how do I fix this??
I eventually gave up and just picked the SMP kernel, and it seems to be running fine. What impact will this have on performance/stability as the machine is not actually capable of SMP?
ANY help is appreciated!!
