Description Kjetil Nygård 2005-06-17 06:03:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
When I run 
[root@kjetil kjetil]# /etc/init.d/cpuspeed restart
[root@kjetil kjetil]#

Nothing happens, and the deamon doesn't start.

When i run cpuspeed the following happens:
[root@kjetil kjetil]# cpuspeed
Error: Could not open file for writing: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
Error: No such file or directory
[root@kjetil kjetil]#


I guess the problem is support for my chipset or cpu is not recognized.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cpuspeed-1.2.1-1.21

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.cpuspeed
2.
3.
  

Actual Results:  When i run cpuspeed the following happens:
[root@kjetil kjetil]# cpuspeed
Error: Could not open file for writing: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
Error: No such file or directory

Expected Results:  That cpuspeed is running.

Additional info:

The output of /proc/cpuinfo is:
[root@kjetil kjetil]# cat /proc/cpuinfo
processor       : 0
vendor_id       : GenuineIntel
cpu family      : 6

bogomips        : 3416.06

Which i guess says that it doesn't know a whole lot about the CPU.
Comment 1 Kjetil Nygård 2005-06-22 16:37:45 EDT
The problem is that the kernel doesn't load the right module: acpi_cpufreq
When this module is loaded, it starts CPU-speed automaticly.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2005-09-23 20:08:40 EDT
will be fixed in cpuspeed-1.2.1-1.23_FC4 which should go to updates-testing real
soon.
Comment 3 Damian Menscher 2005-10-09 14:22:13 EDT
Seeing the same problem on RHEL4, but that doesn't have a cpuspeed rpm (cpuspeed
is part of kernel-utils).  Suggestions appreciated.
