Re: Kernel Oops with dual core athlon 64 (quick question)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Rafael,
I looked at the patch and noticed that it's changing a file inside linux-2.6.12-rc6/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/powernow-k8.c So, basically, it's modifying the powernow driver in the i386 arch directory, but shouldn't that file be in "arch/x86_64/....", or am I missing something? I'm compiling the kernel for x86_64, so will my 64 bit kernel use this file even though it's in the i386 directory?

The dmesg is below.  After I get this Oops, I am unable to use my (PS/2)

core machings having this problem. The suggestion so far has been to remove
the binary nvidia driver and repoducde the bug.  So, I went ahead and
removed the nvidia driver and used the deprecated nv driver that comes with X11 and I still have this issue. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks in advance for the help. I don't know my way around the kernel, but I do have experience with C and should be able to apply any
SMP patches if you want me to test it
It seems to be a cpufreq issue. You can try to apply the attached patch
