I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the Fedora kernel.


I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.

There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel?

If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few weeks if there is no additional information lodged.

The cpu (core 2 quad Q6600) is definitely supported by acpi-cpufreq, so its
gotta be the bios at fault.
Comment 6 Christopher Brown 2008-02-24 11:03:25 EST

Judging from your dmidecode output there is a BIOS update available which you
could try. Would be interested to see if this resolves the issue for you but
will probably close this as NOTABUG.

Since there are insufficient details provided in this report for us to investigate the issue further, and we have not received feedback to the information we have requested above, we will assume the problem was not reproducible, or has been fixed in one of the updates we have released for the reporter's distribution.

Users who have experienced this problem are encouraged to upgrade to the latest update of their distribution, and if this issue turns out to still be reproducible in the latest update, please reopen this bug with additional information.
