Most recent kernel where this bug did *NOT* occur:
Hardware Environment: Asus P5B Deluxe (P965 chipset), Core 2 Duo E6300
Software Environment: Gentoo 64bit
limiti hardware: 1.60 GHz - 1.86 GHz
frequenze disponibili: 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86
GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.86 GHz, 1.60 GHz
while it should go down until 1 ghz.
says the same.
i'm using the centrino /speedstep module.
i tried acpi-speedstep but it does't detect anything and i have no freq scaling.
according to http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-p-3837305.html#3837305
an mm patch should be in place. if so, just tell me i'll be happy to test next week
Steps to reproduce:
E6300 lowest frequency multiplier is 6. This means that if you have FSB at
1066MHz, base CPU frequency is 1066/4=266, and lowest frequency your CPU may
appear at is 266*6=1.6Ghz, exactly what you see.
i'm quite surprised of this as another user reported me from 1.8 to 1.0 ghz.
is speedstep implementation cutting only 200mhz on e6300?
You can get 1.0G on mobile Core (2) Duo, just because it uses 166x4 FSB. E6300
is _not_ mobile part.
