cpu freq. scaling problem
my laptop is IBM R40 pentium-M 1.3Ghz and suse 9.2 pro installed. today i found in info ceter that my cpu is working in a freq. of 598 Mhz. what happened?any one know how this problem can be fixed?

To make the processor run at full speed (and waste the battery ;)) then you will need to use the klaptop applet in the panel, and change CPU throttling to 00% slowdown.
This is what works on my Thinkpad T22
* Proccessor Throttling
Check an see what the following says:
This commands changes speed step cpu setting. 0 is top speed.
echo -n 5 > /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/throttling

2) acpid doesn't start. It says:
