Description Fulko Hew 2003-06-06 15:05:44 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Some applications run _really_ slowly making me suspect the cache isn't enabled
on my Centrino laptop.

The BIOS reports 1Mb Level 2 cache, but there are no indications in the
/var/log/messages file regarding cache, and cpuinfo reports no cache.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.20-18.9

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Power up system.

that value is basically cosmetic; the cpu is to new to be in the kernels' table.
the cache will still be functional of course; the slowness is therefore
something else I fear/

This has apparently been fixed (at least by) in Fedora Core - Test2.
