• I have a problem with my 2.3 CE release. When it boots up I found a line that contains this

    Timecounter "TSC-low" frequency 189649477 Hz quality 1000

    Can anyone tell me this issue? Thanks.

    The system checks the quality of all available timecounters when it boots up and ranks their quality (higher numbers are better). The line you see is perfectly normal, it's the system's rating of the TSC-low timecounter.

    For an example, here is the output from one of my systems:

    Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0
    Timecounter "ACPI-safe" frequency 3579545 Hz quality 850
    Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec
    Timecounter "TSC-low" frequency 1200029592 Hz quality 1000

    So what you need there doesn't indicate a problem.

    Does the system stop booting after printing that line? If so, then the problem is what comes after it, not that.

  • those lines are exactly what I see whenever my system boots up but just continues to normal boot after that. I can now do a clean install of 2.3.2 CE version again. Thanks for the reply!
