FATAL error in Fedora core 6 boot up.

Hello Everybody,

I have installed Fedora Core 6.Everything works fine but i am getting
following message in bootup: "FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq
(/lib/modules/ 2.6.18-1. 2798.fc6/ kernel/arch/ i386/kernel/
cpu/cpufreq/ acpi_cp ufreq.ko): no such device."
Before this i worked with Fedora Core 5 but there is no such FATAL
errors.My machine Configuration is:

I am getting same message in other configuration machine.
I am using default fedora core 6 kernel.

I get the same error message but my system works fine. I think its a bug that has been reported to the FC devs because other people are having the same problem.

Fatal: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq(/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6/kernel/arch/i386/k

I'm having the same problem. At boot I get:

Fatal: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq(/lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2849.fc6/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/acpi-cpufreq.ko) No such device.

My machine is:

Asus P5B, Intel Core 2 Duo 2.13Ghz, FC 6.

Any tips here would be appreciated.

I found my answer in posts #5, 6 & 7

I was running the i586 kernel. Upgrading to the i686 kernel and rebooting seems to have solved the problem.

Thanx guys!

I am getting this same error. I looked at the link posted above however they seem to pertain to updating from the i586 kernel to the i686 kernel. I have the x86_64 kernel installed and as mentioned am getting the same error. Is there any further information for resolving this issue?
