Description shmuelp 2003-06-08 14:50:37 EDT

Description of problem:
Attempting to load the speedstep module fails.  Entry in the log states:
"Intel(R) SpeedStep(TM) for this chipset not (yet) available."

However, my CPU is speedstep capable- just the module doesn't detect that it is.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.20-13.8

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'modprobe speedstep' on a Dell Inspiron 4000    

Actual Results:  /lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/speedstep.o:
insmod /lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/speedstep.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.20-13.8/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/speedstep.o: insmod speedstep
failed


Expected Results:  Module should have inserted cleanly.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem
persists.

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
