Description Fabio Veronese 2011-03-22 21:43:30 UTC
As happened for cpuinfos in bug Bug 352019 this time 2.6.38 kernels (and maybe laters) have no more "/proc/acpi/processor/.../throttling" folder.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the console "phctool"

Actual Results:  

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 468, in <module>
  File "./", line 83, in __init__
  File "inc/libs/", line 16, in __init__
    self._cpus_have_interface()			##check which CPU has a trottling interface
  File "inc/libs/", line 23, in _cpus_have_interface
    if os.path.exists('/proc/acpi/processor/'+self.cpus[cpu]['acpi']['acpiname']+'/throttling') & os.path.exists('/proc/acpi/processor/'+self.cpus[cpu]['acpi']['acpiname']+'/limit'):
KeyError: 'acpiname'

Expected Results:  
no output, just the proper window opening

In the suggested solution I fixed only the path, but some work on throttling interface ( has to be done. I can't fix it myself because Core2Duo have no throttling. I have already posted a thread to PHC official forum, I'm waiting for some news.

Could you please provide a patch (created with 'diff -u ...') instead of a full copy (or is it a complete rewrite?)?

Are there any news from upstream?

Patch for sys-power/phctool-

No news from developers forum... it looks like they are out of GUI developers. Anyway here comes the patch... sorry but I'm not so expert ^_^. If I'm patching a wrong version just let me know.


PS: I confirm it works flawlessly (at least for me) till 3.0.3. not tested on newer kernels yet
