Comment 1 Jarod Wilson 2007-02-08 15:36:10 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #184469 +++

I'm fairly confident the cpuspeed initscript is operating as intended here. The
heart of the issue is that cpuspeed is installed by default and chkconfig'd on
for all systems. Since we have no way of knowing ahead of time if the system
actually supports frequency scaling or not, we opt to fail to start up silently
to avoid alarming anyone. These appear to be simple cases of cpuspeed silently
exiting because the systems they're being run on in this case don't support cpu
frequency scaling.

Folks are welcome to post their /proc/cpuinfo and dmesg output after booting
with cpufreq.debug=7 added to their kernel boot params to try to convince me
otherwise though. :)

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red
Hat Enterprise Linux maintenance release.  Product Management has requested
further review of this request by Red Hat Engineering, for potential
inclusion in a Red Hat Enterprise Linux Update release for currently deployed
products.  This request is not yet committed for inclusion in an Update

3mo. w/o any feedback contrary to my assertion that cpuspeed is operating as
intended, closing NOTABUG.
