problem is that I'm not able to load the important modules for speedstepping.
I know exactly that I need the module speedstep-ich.
[root@archlinux nik]# modprobe speedstep-ich FATAL: Error inserting speedstep_ich (/lib/modules/2.6.17-ARCH/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/speedstep-ich.ko): No such device
FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq (/lib/modules/2.6.17-ARCH/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/acpi-cpufreq.ko): Device or resource busy
cpufreq_ondemand and speedstep_centrino are already loaded.
I think you only need cpufreq_ondemand and speedstep_centrino!
Which Processor do you have?
Have you tried to turn it off and on again?
[root@archlinux ~]# cat /proc/cpuinfo| grep name model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.70GHz
I did several times a customized (own) kernel and therefore I know what I need. Now I just want to try the standard kernel ;-)
So actually I need this speedstep_ich and the ondemand governor - then everything works just fine. Never used cpufreqd - no need for it since kernel do it with ondemand fine.
Probably the speedstep_centrino module conflicts with speedstep_ich. Try blacklisting it. On my system, I need to blacklist acpi-cpufreq and p4-clockmod, otherwise I can't use speedstep-centrino. It might be the same case here. You could also blacklist cpufreq_ondemand if you don't want to use it.
Hm, I am sorry.
Obviously I really need only speedstep_centrino and cpufreq_ondemand.
There were some illegal values in /etc/conf.d/cpufreq.
But I'am rellay surprised that speedstep-ich is not needed - i have a ICH4 (chips?) system. Quite interesting that there was no error or something like that when I did my own kernel and used this ich stuff.
So I'm sorry, thx
