Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 155413
no cpufreq/speed packages installed on laptop
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
on my centrino laptop neither cpufreq-utils nor cpuspeed packages are installed,
so the laptop always runs at highest speed
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
install fc4test2 on a laptop an watch cpuspeed
Steps to Reproduce:
Confirmed. No package depends on cpuspeed and it's not listed in comps.xml.
(In FC3, cpuspeed was part of the kernel-utils package which was in the base group)
I had to pull in cpufreq-utils and cpuspeed using an FC3 to FC4 test
installation. The computer starts at full frequency and did not scale. I could
change frequencies via the applet to a lower frquency.
I'm not sure if this is related to the problem here, but there is also no
cpuspeed module in Fedora CVS (even though a separate SRPM exists in rawhide).
The CVS problem is one of those stupid things that just needs a bit of attention.
As far as fixing comps, this is done and the change should be included in test3.
Thanks for pointing this out!
