'nosmp' removed

July 20, 2010 — BarryK
The Puppy Universal Installer appends the kernel boot parameter 'nosmp'. This was done as a precaution as it might have helped booting on some uniprocessor systems.

However, it does cause confusion as users wonder why their multi-core CPU is only running on one core.

So, I have removed the 'nosmp' boot parameter. The affected script is /usr/sbin/puppyinstaller.
