Description of problem:
After the installation of RHEL-6.7-Snapshot-1, during booting into any rc mode list of error messages "/etc/rc5.d/S13cpuspeed: line91: echo: write error: Invalid argument" are seen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always while booting into rc modes like rc5, rc4, rc3, rc2 and rc1.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Boot into the installed OS. (Generally in run level 5)
3.Check the boot.log messages for error messages for current run level.
Error messages by cpuspeed are seen.
"/etc/rc5.d/S13cpuspeed: line91: echo: write error: Invalid argument"
Starting cpuspeed [failed]
No Error messages. cpuspeed should work properly.
Seems like /etc/rc5.d/S13cpuspeed is trying to insert values like "userspace" or "ondemand" or "conservative" and is failing because its not supported by the system.

Thank you for the report. This is a known issue affecting Intel platforms caused by changes in the kernel.
This is of a purely cosmetic nature and you can safely disable the cpuspeed service as scaling and performance management is now done by the kernel driver directly.
In that case, can you please disable this service from init.d, just to prevent any confusion from user-end?

Yes, something along those lines is the planned fix for this problem.
Fixed in cpuspeed-1.5-21.el6.
