Try to modprobe -f. Drivers are compiled agains pre v50 version. lxp must recompile it against released v50 to avoid problems...

Please anyone who has not enabled SR, to do a little experimenting with default and dsp profiles and to confirm/not if SR is stable and how is the battery life with SR. Also if you have your own undervolting profile, I will appreciate a comparison between your manually tuned voltages and SR calculated. SR should be rock stable in KP50, but I need a confirmation.

Note:
Have in mind that if you have your own undervolting profile, SR would not make battery life better, at least not much.
