Debian :: Install P4-clockmod And Other Cpufreq Modules?
Jul 30, 2011
I have a Xserve server with Debian 2.6.26-2-amd64, the cpu is 2 X Intel Xeon 5150 @ 2.66GHz.I want to scaling down the cpu frequency and I only found three modules in my system and all of them are not working:
lake:/# ls /lib/modules/2.6.26-2-amd64/kernel/arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpufreq
acpi-cpufreq.ko† powernow-k8.ko† speedstep-centrino.ko
lake:/# modprobe acpi-cpufreq
I have a Xserve server with Debian 2.6.26-2-amd64, the cpu is 2 X Intel Xeon 5150 @ 2.66GHz.I want to scaling down the cpu frequency and I only found three modules in my system and all of them are not working.I found only module P4-clockmod can work with Xeon processors, but I don't know how to install it into the system.
I recently started having this odd behaviour while using and loading cpufrequtils on boot, I don't know if it is happening to someone else.During boot I'm getting( when /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils invokes /etc/init.d/loadcpufreq to load the proper module):
Loading cpufreq kernel modules...FATAL: Error inserting speedstep_centrino (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/speedstep-centrino.ko): No such device FATAL: Error inserting pcc_cpufreq (/lib/modules/3.0.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/pcc-cpufreq.ko): No such device
I am not sure where to post that so I'll just try here.My main question is: How can I prevent the system from changing my cpufreq settings? I'd like to keep the CPU load as low as possible so these settings are probably the best.However when I run some applications that require a higher CPU load the system changes the governor to performance and the rang to 0.8 - 2.4 GHz.And that's my problem. I neither know what application exactly is responsible for changing my cpufreq settings nor do I know how to turn that off.Or is it supposed to be that way?
Sometime back I installed cpufreq. Now while I know quite little about cpufreq, what little I understand tells me it can do two things :-
a. Give the user the capability to change frequencies - there is something called max frequencies and minimum frequencies and the user can play between them.
b. Show the cpufrequencies via the GNOME cpufreq plugin/applet.
Now while its able to show me the frequencies, I'm not able to find a GNOME or GTK front-end which I can use to set the frequencies. I did read a little bit about something called 'governers' which from what I learnt are something similar to profiles - as in you want to be conservative, powersave, ondemand and performance.
1. I'm looking for a Gnome-GTK CPU setting frequency GUI.
2. If somebody wants to share more info. about the whole cpu frequency thing that is also very welcome as I'm not really aware as to how can I do things a bit more intelligently so I'm able to get a bit more performance while not using much energy (can be done or cannot be done ?) but that discussion hopefully comes later after I've a tool through which I can do the same in GUI.
my error when trying to run a VB (Virtualbox). Error as copied from error box. install the virtualbox-ose-modules package for your kernel and execute 'modprobe vboxdrv' as root. VBox status code: -1908 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_INSTALLED).
I get this when trying to launch a VB after making one with wizzard.
I've been trying to load my pcmcia network card driver "xirc2ps_cs" at startup with no success. I have added "modprobe xirc2ps_cs" to the rc.modules file but it doesn't load at startup. Curiously, though, if I execute rc.modules AFTER the machine has booted it will load the modules just fine. Just not during the boot up process. Thinking that hotstart might have been causing problems I've disabled hotstart (chmod -x) temporarilly to remove it from the picture, but there was no change.
I'm trying to install some wireless drivers, but apparently I don't have a /lib/modules/<kernel>/build directory, which is causing the Makefile to throw an error. Is there a specific place I should point the Makefile at?
I am having some problems with my CPU speed detailed here: [URL]
Basically it is restricting my computer to 800Mhz after 10-15mins for no reason. With Windows I was able to use something called Notebook Hardware control to ramp up the speed to the max of 1.73GHz. With the cpufreq applet, it won;t do anything.
Is there another program I can use to override the speed?
To start off with, I'll put the information as best I can that I think would help everyone figure out what it is that I want to do:My Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1545I have a Broadcom BCM4312 802.11b/g (rev. 01) Wifi Driver (according to lspci)Take care, I already have it working!I installed the driver for it (as best I could) from I am running Debian 5.08 Lenny amd64My wireless internet works via the instructions from My question is how I can set it up so that every time I boot, I don't have to run:modprobe ieee80211_crypt_tkipinsmod wl.koIn the terminal (after using su and then going to the folder that contains the wl.ko file).
I've been trying to find this on the internet, but it seems that I have been unlucky in that department. This is the first time in about 6 years I've used linux (back in high school I tinkered with Slackware, Gentoo, and Vector, recently tried openSUSE but I've always been curious to try out Debian).
Tonight I installed ubuntu 10.10 (32 bit) on an external usb harddrive with a dvd I burned and I used my older desktop. I disconnected all internal and external drives first so everything had to be put on the usb drive I selected (only option available). I used the option to load extra software, use the entire hard drive, and let the software do it's thing. I basically had no options where to put things and it didn't have much choice.
When I boot the usb drive on my laptop (win 7 64 bit) by telling the bios to boot to it first... I get an error: modprobe: FATAL Could not load /lib/modules 2.6.35-22 generic modules No such file or directory. This message appears twice and then it does boot into ubuntu and seems to work fine. I'm new to this OS so that is an uneducated guess but the things I have done seem to be working. So exactly what is this error referring too? Is there a way to fix the problem or do I just ignore it.
I have to load the ip_conntrack modules every time I reboot. How do I get the iptables modules to load automatically at boot. It seems they are supposed to auto load when they are needed but they are not doing that. I have to do modprobe on them. also does anyone know where I can download all the modules available for iptables? I looked on the netfiler site and did not learn much.
I have installed an images using debbootstrap command. The problem is there is no module in /lib/modules.For example I have installed lm-sensors but when I run sensors-detect, in the middle of detection I get these:FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.32-24-server/modules.dep: No such file or directoryFailed to load module i2c-piix4
i want to do is dual boot windows, Slackware, and Debian. I don't care if i use lilo or grub, they are both equally familiar to me, just above nort. i have made attempts at editing the lilo.conf file, which said it had warnings but i didn't know how to view the warnings. It made it so i could select it, but when i did it booted the slack kernel with debian with no modules. get slack, debian and windows all running on my machine the way they're intended?
I have a dedicated server. It doesn't have any GUI (gnome or something like that), so i need to use terminal, which is hard for a non-advanced user. So i have a few questions:I'm hosting a CS server and a few other servers later on. But right now only CS server. With it i need to start another perl window, which updates the stats to the website and database.So how can i start both server, that program and maybe use the console at the same time?Another question is: when i quit the server, it automatically restarts. How can i just kill the process? I don't want to restart my server every time i want to shut down the CS one.
About perl: how can i install per modules and how can i know the translations of perl modules from windows to linux names?And is there any firewalls by default clean installation, which might 27500 port and any connections trough 3306 to the database on my web server? If no, how come, that my program is unable to connect to my website database?Will my own email server take a lot of resources? Which only i would use and wouldn't receive much mail? And are there any guides how can i do that?Will a web server, which wouldn't take much visitors each day take a lot of resources?
I'm running 9.10 server on a mini-itx board. The CPU is Core 2 Duo T5450 and supports Enhanced Speedstep and the BIOS is set to auto, enabling C1E.I've been trying to get cpufreq to work but none of the drivers are present.When I try to load suitable ones they are always not found.Does someone know if cpufreq is not supported on the server kernal? Or what command will apt-get the modules that aren't here now?I've been reading the cpufreq tutorials but can't get past loading a suitable driver - which means I'm nowhere now. My notebook runs the same CPU and cpufreq is working fine with desktop Ubuntu install of 9.10.
After a hiatus I found my machine to be down, but upon turning it on I get significant errors and dropped into emergency mode (see below). This machine wasn't very up-to-date to begin with, so I'm having difficulty determining the order in which to proceed. A couple naive checks and updates on my part are not working. The file system appears to be intact enough to "cd" around and "ls" to see that my files are all (seemingly) there. But the kernel modules aren't loading which is, you know, a problem.
The state I find it in is that it will begin booting to Linux 3.2 (which I know is no longer supported in testing, see below where I tried to update to 3.16), but fails quickly and puts me into emergency mode
Loading, please wait... megasas: INIT adapter done systemd: Failed to insert module 'autofs4' systemd: Failed to open /dev/autofs: No such file or directory systemd: Failed to initialize automounter: No such file or directory systemd: Failed to set up automount Arbitrary Executable File Formats File System Automount Point.
...Then several drives show up as clean....
Running "journalctl -xb" shows that it can't mount the module even though it's there on the disk: ... systemd-modules-load: could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/modules.dep.bin' ... systemd-modules-load: Failed to lookup alias 'firewire-sbp2': Function not implemented ... systemd-modules-load: could not open modeep file '/lib/modules/3.2.0-4-amd64/modules.dep.bin' ... systemd-modules-load: Failed to lookup alias 'loop': Function not implemented
And yet, if I 'ls' that modules.dep.bin file, it's right where it's supposed to be, for the appropriate architecture and everything.
After that (in the journalctl output), it shows several things start up, but systemd-modules-load.service fails: .. systemd: systemd-modules-load.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE .. systemd: systemd-modules-load.service: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules
...and lots of things fail from systemd-udevd: failed to execute '/lib/udev/socket:@/org/freedesktop/hal/udev_ev_event': No such file directory.
I tried updating via apt to the Linux 3.16.0 kernel, but grub wasn't finding it in a way that effects the boot process, and no appropriate "vmlinuz-" file appears with the others on the boot partition. So, I tried switching to grub2 but the update-grub command produces many errors.... For now, grub2 still (attempts to) load the old kernel (3.2) with the same results as I was getting with the old grub-legacy.
Regarding the module-loading features, running "lsmod" shows about 30 lines:
Module ext3 mbcache jbd dm_mod usbhid hid
...I'm at the limit of what I know to check and/or try.
i'm trying to install driver for some PCI device but i have problems with it - when i run it it gives me an error
Code: Select allmake: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build' make: *** No rule to make target `modules'.¬† Stop. make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build'
i've tried to find solution in internets but have no success usually they say that problem is that ppl forget to download kernel-headers and kernel-sources or unpack kernel-sources or make symlink usr/src/linux but i've done it all and the result is the same.i think the root of problem is that `/lib/modules/ 2.6.32-5-686/build' folder is empty but there have to be this RULE, so what i have to do to have it there? my system is Debian 6.0.10 Squeeze, Kernel 2.6.32-5-686.
My new laptop works out of the box except for the video and the ethernet. For this, I have to use a later kernel than the Debian kernel (debian squeeze is currently 2.6.32). Upgrading to the new kernel (without moving to the testing dist itself) was pretty easy. I just installed linux-image-2.6.38-2-amd64 and linux-base from the testing distribution by manually downloading and using dpkg. After that, ethernet and video started working.
However, my virtualbox installation no longer works because the drivers do not match the kernel. I am used to this; whenever debian upgrades the kernel on me, I have to run "/etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup". This rebuilds the drivers. This failed for me, however, because it could not find the headers. So, I installed some more packages:
I am a frequent user of debian I think I'll be a lot here start immediately with a problem, and I hope that someone has already happened and found a solution. In practice I have to install a IBM x3250 m3 and the cd installer debian lenny 5.0.3 or 5.0.4 do not want it to find the CD-ROM drive, a module to mount the drive after the bootstrap the exact error on the screen comes up after selecting the language and keyboard: no common cd-rom drive was detected cd-rom modules
