Description Allan Engelhardt 2007-07-12 20:54:18 UTC
Description of problem:

The Gnome cpufreq-applet (from gnome-applets-2.18.0-7.fc7) does not work with
the new kernel interface for the CPU frequency (see also Bug 243220).

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


How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install cpuspeed.x86_64 cpufreq-utils.x86_64
2. service cpuspeed start
3. cpufreq-info  #  Validate that CPU frequency *is* working correctly
                 #  Use cpufreq-set if wanted
4. Add the cpufreq-applet to your panel
5. See message about 'CPU Frequency Scaling Unsupported'
6. When clicking on applet, it opens just a very small white box, not the
expected menu of governors and frequencies
Actual results: (see above)

Expected results: (see above)

Additional info: The interface to CPU frequency scaling changed from FC6 to F7,
see the bug ref. above.

This is part of gnome-applets since a long time. Changing component.

Comment 2 Allan Engelhardt 2007-07-17 07:58:15 UTC
A couple of reboots later, the applet appears to work.  Apologies for the
incorrect bug submission.
