I'm sorry, the error message on system startup is "No such device" and not "No
such file or directory"
Comment 3 Liang Zhang 2006-10-23 23:42:33 EDT
This is not a bug about cpuspeed. If you use the other frequency scaling tools
(like cpudynd,  cpufreqd,  powernowd, and so on), it will also fail.
The reason which creates this bug is that the directory of
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq doesn't exist.
You should re-compile your kernel enabling cpufreq support.

Thanks for the info. I've made a clone of this bug for the kernel
Comment 5 Jarod Wilson 2006-12-21 11:19:52 EST
I believe this was just cpuspeed loading the wrong driver, should be fixed in
the latest update.
