26 kernel config?


i am currently running slackware and i need to update from the stock 24 kernel. when i do the 26 kernel config i want to make sure i get all the acpi stuff so that i can hopefully get better battery life. anyone got a good working config that i could maybe look at? i am mainly just worried about making sure the cpu stepping works right, not too worried about suspend or anything like that but it would be nice. laptop is a dell latitude c610 (inspiron 8100)

Here's mine if you think it will help you some.

Code:
# Power management options (ACPI, APM)
# ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
CONFIG_ACPI=y
CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP=y
CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP_PROC_FS=y
# CONFIG_ACPI_SLEEP_PROC_SLEEP is not set
CONFIG_ACPI_AC=y
CONFIG_ACPI_BATTERY=y
CONFIG_ACPI_BUTTON=y
CONFIG_ACPI_VIDEO=y
CONFIG_ACPI_HOTKEY=y
CONFIG_ACPI_FAN=y
CONFIG_ACPI_PROCESSOR=y
CONFIG_ACPI_THERMAL=y
# CONFIG_ACPI_ASUS is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_IBM is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA is not set
CONFIG_ACPI_BLACKLIST_YEAR=0
# CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_ACPI_EC=y
CONFIG_ACPI_POWER=y
CONFIG_ACPI_SYSTEM=y
# CONFIG_ACPI_CONTAINER is not set
# CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ is not set
CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_CENTRINO_ACPI=y
# CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ_PROC_INTF is not set
CONFIG_PNPACPI=y
You'll want to enable CPU throttling as well. But I haven't really enabled that on my own yet, so I can't really help you there. All I've done with it is just compiled in my kernel.

See my page for info on ACPI throttling; I use it on Compaq Armada M700 (P3 800Mhz):

http://users.utu.fi/sjsepp/linuxcompaqarmadam700.html

If your processor supports Intel Speedstep, Powernow! or some other CPU frequency scaling then check my Compaq Armada 100S page:

http://users.utu.fi/sjsepp/ubuntu/frameset.html

There you'll also find kernel configs for at least 2.6.13 and 2.6.16.
