               tar xzpf /kernels/kernel_SMP.gz --exclude loader.conf -C /boot/
       fi

The formatting of that ticket came out really bad.

if [ $KERNELTYPE = "UP" ]; then

if [ -f /kernels/kernel_SMP.gz ]; then

tar xzpf /kernels/kernel_uniprocessor.gz --exclude loader.conf -C /boot/

Let's try one more time...

if [ $KERNELTYPE = "UP" ]; then

if [ -f /kernels/kernel_SMP.gz ]; then
if [ -f /kernels/kernel_uniprocessor.gz ]; then

tar xzpf /kernels/kernel_uniprocessor.gz --exclude loader.conf -C /boot/

Use the pre button for code.

The issue here is somewhat moot: The UP kernel is eventually going to be phased out. The SMP kernel option has been in the UP kernel for the past several months and nobody has noticed. This code is just making that change for people for when the UP kernel goes away.

but if the system does have a UP kernel, it won't be replaced on upgrade. Newer snapshots do not have a UP kernel files so fails to copy the new SMP into place where the UP was.
