Description Jane Dogalt 2006-12-03 01:50:26 UTC
Description of problem:

When booting the 20061202 fc6 beta livecd (for the first time) on a p3-600/378M,
with a gforce4, I got the following error during text booting (tangent: no
rhgb?).  FATAL ERROR ... acpi_cpufreq, no such device.

I don't suspect it had any detrimental affect on the system, rather its just
something that would undesirably scare new user.

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

/etc/mayflower.conf is nov 30

How reproducible:

haven't tried yet, presumably...

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

This is probably simple, and I may add more info later, or submit a patch, if I
discover the existence of a tree to build the iso.

I'm submitting this from firefox on the target system.  Excellent work David.

Didn't find a pastable version of the error in /var/log/messages or dmesg

This sounds like a kernel bug so I'm reassigning it here... I'm not seeing the
bug  on any on my own systems btw. Thanks for testing the live cd!

Comment 2 David Zeuthen 2006-12-06 02:38:37 UTC


seems to shed some light on the issue. I think rc.sysinit just attempts to load
all sorts of modules for platform drivers, right Bill? As such, that leads me to
believe this is NOTABUG.

Comment 3 Jarod Wilson 2006-12-06 05:34:42 UTC
This is an issue with cpuspeed trying to load the acpi-cpufreq module on systems that don't support it. 
There's an updated cpuspeed in updates-testing that works around it.
