Slackware / ACPI


How do I get ACPI working properly in slackware 12.1?

I'm using an Intel laptop (IBM R50e) and the cpu is not speed stepping as it should but is just running at max frequency constantly. this makes the laptop a furnace and means the fan is constantly whirring.

Any tips?

Ta.

Hi,

Ok I've had a look but i'm not sure i've found a comprehensive solution. In fact its all a bit bizarre.

I've added these lines into /etc/rc.d/rc.local

/sbin/modprobe acpi_cpufreq
/sbin/modprobe cpufreq_powersave
/sbin/modprobe cpufreq_ondemand
/sbin/modprobe cpufreq_performance

with no effect.

Also tried uncommenting a few acpi related modules in rc.modules with no effect.

Am I barking up the wrong tree or just mising something?
