modprobe question


Gday. So i'm trying to configure my macbook pro with Gnu/Linux again. Last time i wasn't happy with the battery life and that seems to be my biggest issue again.
Anyways, i need to run these two commands.
Code:
modprobe acpi_cpufreq
modprobe cpufreq_ondemand
I can run them fine, but if i reboot, i need to run them again, how does one have these run each time i reboot.

I'm running Opensuse 12.2 if that's of any consequence

Thanks

Put them in a script and set it to run at start-up using the KDE Session manager.

On the general topic of power saving, you may find something useful here:

So there isn't a standard configuration file that usually gets edited to achieve this?

Thankyou very much for that websight, that'll be very helpful. It's been really awesome, while i've been configuring this mac, i've been finding tricks like the ones on that page, and once i'm done, many i can implement on my primary laptop too, which is my main work machine by the way. (dependent on laptops, not on the power grid)

i believe that the file you want is /etc/rc.d/rc.local

I'd forgotten rc.local! Using Linux is like living in a great city: no matter how long you've been there, you still need to get directions sometimes.
