Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-01-28 15:10:17 UTC
this should be fixed in a subsequent errata kernel.

Comment 2 Kiran Rao 2005-01-28 16:01:36 UTC
But what' the effect of the 2 Warnings? How does it affect operation?

Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-01-29 02:25:39 UTC
You need to ask upstream kernel.org this question.  Meanwhile please
test the latest FC3 update kernel.

Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-01-29 03:06:38 UTC
the powernow error means you won't get variable cpu speed scaling
working.  The vesafb error means you won't get a hi resolution
framebuffer console.
