fix for a cpuspeed startup script
Comment 1 Michal Jaegermann 2006-08-25 15:14:28 EDT
Description of problem:

/etc/init.d/cpuspeed is turned on by default but it may fail.
At least on a start it checks for that condition but only after
it produced a message which is not really relevant in the context
(cf. bug 201463 which, in a sense, may be not a bug at all).

'service cpuspeed stop' may just fail by trying to read from a
non-existent location and here a relevant check is just missing.

Sure, one can always do 'chkconfig cpuspeed off' but maybe problems
are only temporary specific to some kernels?

Attached is a proposed patch to deal with the problem.

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

How reproducible:
always on a machine where cpuspeed does not work

Eep, finally got mass-reassigned all the cpuspeed bugs over the weekend... I
believe this one is taken care of in the latest rawhide build. I like the
null-redirect on modprobing acpi-cpufreq, but not for $DRIVER. Since the user
must manually specify $DRIVER, I like spitting an error if they screwed up.
