Description Aleksey Nogin 2003-07-29 03:02:29 UTC
For some reason, in beta1, the /proc/cpufreq and /proc/sys/cpu do not have any data:

# cat /proc/cpufreq
          minimum CPU frequency  -  maximum CPU frequency  -  policy
# cat /proc/sys/cpu/0/speed
# cat /proc/sys/cpu/0/speed-max
# cat /proc/sys/cpu/0/speed-min

This used to work before (in earlier post-9 Rawhide kernels, for example)

# cat /proc/cpuinfo

vendor_id       : GenuineIntel

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-07-29 03:38:12 UTC
Is p4-clockmod loaded? (Or whatever the equivalent module is?)

Comment 2 Aleksey Nogin 2003-07-29 03:53:31 UTC
There is no p4-clockmod module in the kernel-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl.i686.rpm
(or kernel-unsupported-2.4.21-20.1.2024.2.1.nptl.i686.rpm for that matter).

Comment 3 Dave Jones 2003-08-08 21:27:06 UTC
# CONFIG_X86_P4_CLOCKMOD is not set
As well as several other cpufreq modules.

The current cpufreq patch is a little out of date, I'll be updating it sometime
RSN, I'll enable these extra modules at the same time.

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2003-08-21 15:43:05 UTC
Fixed for next kernel/beta.
