Bug Description

Whether fresh install or dist-upgrade to 9.04, the older kernel 2.6.27-11-generic available in Grub menu is now broken.

For computers with Atom CPU, such as DELL Mini-9 and almost all Netbooks, loading kernel 2.6.27-11-generic breaks support of CPU frequency scaling. This causes the CPU to always run hot at the maximum frequency and therefore temperature stress the entire computer.

Somehow the kernel 2.6.27-11-generic is modified and corrupted by the upgrade to 9.04.

This bug has been removed from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/365512 and separated in its own bug report
since it has nothing to do with breaking support of SD card.

Hi Earl,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/ .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 365992

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
