Description Joe Ammond 2004-01-23 10:43:32 EST

Description of problem:
Hardware: Dell Latitide D600
Kernel: kernel-2.6.1-1.53

On my Dell Latitude D600 laptop, cpuspeed fails to start even
with the speedstep-centrino module in the DRIVER= line in
/etc/cpuspeed.conf.  The cpufreq_userspace module needs to
be loaded as well for cpuspeed to function.  As a work-around,
I modified /etc/init.d/cpuspeed to treat the DRIVER= line
from cpuspeed.conf as a list of modules, and modprobe each
accordingly.  Another work-around is to modprobe cpufreq_userspace
first, then re-run /etc/init.d/cpuspeed manually.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power on the machine, cpuspeed fails to start due because
cpufreq_userpsace isn't present.

I've got the same problem right now.
Comment 3 Joe Ammond 2004-02-06 18:06:18 EST
From rpm -q --changelog kernel :

* Tue Jan 27 2004 Dave Jones <davej@redhat.com>

- Update to 2.6.2-rc2-bk1
- Set default CPUFREQ governor to userspace instead of performance.

This eliminates the problem I had with cpuspeed starting.  Given
that, I'd consider this closed.
