cpuspeed and cpudyn not working with my mobile pentium 4, please help!





Hi all,

I have a laptop with a mobile pentium 4 2.8 ht as we can see from cat /proc/cpuinfo:

processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel
cpu family : 15
model : 2
model name : Mobile Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz

I'd like to know why I can't have cpu throttling. :(


I'm using the 2.6.7 kernel in fedora core 2.


I can see that I do have the /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/* files but if I restart cpuspeed or start dyncpu they hang and if I do a cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_cur_freq, cat hangs too. And I can't kill them, even sending -9 signal!! :(


I tried loading the speedstep-ich and I have a ich based south bridge with no luch too. But I only got a module speedstep-ich not found. How do I know if the speedstep-ich is already compiled in kernel? and I can't find it with /sbin/lsmod but I do have the cpufreq files...

I could notice that I don't have the powersave as one of the available governors, I only have performance and userspace.

I also noticed that:

cat /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/info
processor id:            0
acpi id:                 0
bus mastering control:   yes
power management:        no
throttling control:      no
limit interface:         no


and if I do cat /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/throttling it says: <not supported>

Why??


I'd like to be able to use cpu throttling so I can get longer battery usage and less heat.


Please, could you help me??

I don't know what information I could give you besides that. If I'm missing something, please let me know.


Thanks in advance.


Regards,

Francisco Figueiredo Jr.
