FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:46 EST
Description of problem:
During init startup service at
"start service cpuspeed" I get the following error
"FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq ... no such file or directory"
When trying to start cpuspeed manually I get the following erro
"Error: Could not open file for writing:
Error: No such file or directory"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install latest kernel for fc5
2. Reboot the system
cpuspeed didn't start
cpuspeed is started
Processor is Intel Celeron M 1.5 GHz
see attached for dmesg output
Created attachment 139057 [details]
I'm sorry, the error message on system startup is "No such device" and not "No
such file or directory"
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
I believe this was just cpuspeed loading the wrong driver, should be fixed in
the latest update.
