cpuspeed throttles box to a crawl
Last modified: 2009-06-24 15:33:27 EDT
After yum upgrade to cpuspeed-1.5-8.fc11.x86_64, message:
"/etc/rc3.d/S06cpuspeed: line 169: [: argument expected"
appears during boot sequence on dual-core Atom box. Machine runs very slowly.
"Top" shows two instances of cpuspeed consuming 30% of cpu between them. /proc/cpuinfo shows all four cores throttled down to 200Mhz (full speed is 1.6Ghz). Disabling cpuspeed and rebooting restores the system to health.
1. Buy a zoltac dual-core atom board and build it up.
2. Install F11 x86_64 and "yum upgrade" on June 20.
4. cat /proc/cpuinfo (if you have a few minutes).
Yeah, crap, I pooched the -8 update... Will get -9 out the door w/a fix for this in just a sec.
cpuspeed-1.5-9.fc11 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 11.
