Does anyone have Cool'n'Quiet/powernow working on a dual-core system with the Abit nf-m2 nview?
I have this in dmesg:
Is there an easy fix for this, or do I need to edit the DSDT as described here?Code:powernow-k8: Found 2 AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800+ processors (version 2.00.00) powernow-k8: MP systems not supported by PSB BIOS structure powernow-k8: MP systems not supported by PSB BIOS structure
I have this board and see no chance for a fix.
Many other people have the same chipset but different boards.
u are not the only one with this problem
Sorry for my double post.
The most time it works fine. But in different chases the system hangs up. Someday after 30 minutes 100% cpu load, someday after 16 hours hard cpu work.
Just for clarity, I have the Abit NF-M2 nView, with the latest BIOS. I couldn't get powernow to work until I built the functionality directly into the kernel (versus as a module).
So far, I've had no hard lockups, but some random flaky behavior. This is on a MythTV box, and there's a lot going on, so I can't tell if the problems are Cool'n'Quiet or something else.
Yes I have the same board with the .14 bios.
I try it as module or compiled in the kernel. Same result.
Now i wanna try the new abit board with 7025/50 chipset and hope that it will works.
Anyway, I too am thinking about switching. But I'm looking at the ASRock NF7G-HDready motherboard, actually reviewed here on Phoronix. I like this board because it has a serial port, firewire, undervolting capability and the 7050 chipset. Note that the 7050 chipset has much lower power consumption than the 6150 (always a win for heat an noise in a MythTV setup).
Not the same board but same chipsets.
There its Ubuntu. I used Gentoo and used power... as module and compiled it into the kernel. No effects.
P.S. the board design of the asrock is just ugly ... the power plug in the middle of the board ...

You can forget LRM from Ubuntu, all GFX drivers are outdated. If you remove the LRM things you could use a script to install the latest ones...
