Description Benjamin LaHaise 2007-01-18 20:24:05 EST
The kernel config (2.6.19-1.2895) does not include the K7 PowerNow module. 
Without this module, battery life is reduced significantly and this laptop runs
too hot.
# CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K7 is not set
Comment 1 Jarod Wilson 2007-01-19 10:25:33 EST
We actually build powernow-k7 into the kernel, not as a module, and it *is* enabled in the i686 kernel:

$ rpm -q --qf='%{name}-%{version}-%{release}.%{arch}\n' kernel
kernel-2.6.18-1.2869.fc6.i686
kernel-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6.i686

$ grep POWERNOW_K7 /boot/config-2.6.19-1.2895.fc6 
CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K7=y
CONFIG_X86_POWERNOW_K7_ACPI=y

I suspect you may have the i586 kernel installed instead of the i686 one. See http://fedoraproject.org/
wiki/Bugs/FC6Common.
