7.29. cpufrequtils

Updated cpufrequtils packages that fix one bug and add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The cpufrequtils packages contain utilities that can be used to control the cpufreq interface provided by the kernel on hardware that supports CPU frequency scaling.

Bug Fix

Previously, the debug options in the package build scripts were disabled. Consequently, the debuginfo packages were not generated for the cpufrequtils utility. With this update, the debug options in the build scripts have been enabled, and debuginfo options are now available for cpufrequtils binary files.


Prior to this update, the cpufreq-aperf utility was missing man pages. To provide the user with more information on cpufreq-aperf, the man pages have been added.
Users of cpufrequtils are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug and add this enhancement.
