Confirmed.  No package depends on cpuspeed and it's not listed in comps.xml.
(In FC3, cpuspeed was part of the kernel-utils package which was in the base group)

Comment 2 Jim Cornette 2005-04-23 14:47:09 UTC
I had to pull in cpufreq-utils and cpuspeed using an FC3 to FC4 test
installation. The computer starts at full frequency and did not scale. I could
change frequencies via the applet to a lower frquency.

Comment 3 Ziga Mahkovec 2005-04-25 23:26:13 UTC
I'm not sure if this is related to the problem here, but there is also no
cpuspeed module in Fedora CVS (even though a separate SRPM exists in rawhide).

Comment 4 Elliot Lee 2005-04-27 16:12:34 UTC
The CVS problem is one of those stupid things that just needs a bit of attention.

As far as fixing comps, this is done and the change should be included in test3.
Thanks for pointing this out!
