Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249129
cpuscale broke on 126.96.36.199
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem: Updated to kernel 188.8.131.52 and cpuscale says wrong
hardware or not configured properly. Worked fine on FC5 and F7 (first 2 kernels).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:No cpuscaling
Additional info:3800+x2, nf4, tell me what you need. Thanks
Yum, in its infinite wisdom, decided to install the 586 kernel instead of the
686 kernel and I did not catch it until now. Once the 686 version was installed,
it all seems happy. I thought yum fixed this in FC6.
Sorry for the waste of time.
The FC6 installer is the thing that was busted and installed i586 kernels, which lead to yum subsequently
continuing to install i586 kernels. Not sure if there may be some other yum problem too though, I don't
run many 32-bit systems, and the ones I do all seem to behave (only install i686 kernels)... In any case,
glad to hear we didn't break cpu freq scaling. :)
