this should be fixed in a subsequent errata kernel.
Comment 2 Kiran Rao 2005-01-28 11:01:36 EST
But what' the effect of the 2 Warnings? How does it affect operation?
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2005-01-28 21:25:39 EST
You need to ask upstream kernel.org this question.  Meanwhile please
test the latest FC3 update kernel.
Comment 4 Dave Jones 2005-01-28 22:06:38 EST
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.
