I've just run an YOU - my machine was out of action for a while. That's installed the kernel 2.6.5-7.75-default .
Now the darn cpu is stuck at 800MHz and won't throttle to 1800MHz. This used to happen with SUSE 9, but was fine when I upgraded to 9.1 - until the last update
I have an Athlon 64 DTR 3000+ running on a K8T800 mobo.
I get an error message in /var/logs/boot.msg:
Starting cpufreqd Error: Could not open file for writing: /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
startproc: exit status of parent of /usr/sbin/cpufreqd: 1
done<notice>exit status of (splash postfix kbd cups cpufreqd) is (0 0 0 0 7)
Failed services in runlevel 5: cpufreqd
I also get this error in dmesg
powernow-k8: BIOS error: numpst must be 1
which if I remember correctly was the problem that used to exist in the 2.4.x kernel in SUSE 9, but everything was working perfectly with my previous kernel linux-2.6.4-54.5
and /proc/cpufreq is empty
checked the directory
and there's nothing there at all.
Does anyone have some ideas on what I might be able to do or what I should be checking for?
