cpu speed


How can I set my cpu speed to desired value?

Weeks ago I ran something for xine, and got a bug-report that shows: cpu MHz : 1150.064

It should run at 1,500.

I can't find the right place in BIOS.

I have AMD Athlon XP1800

Your cpu can be blocked against changing clock rate. My Celeron2Ghz wasn't. I tried it as 2700, but didn't notice any difference... also if you increase cpu clock rate your cpu may just "disappear" any moment

Some motherboards use jumpers to set clock speed.

Um. My cpu speed is adjustable in BIOS, I did it about 2 1/2 years ago, but have forgotten where it is -
If someone knows the name of the section in BIOS, that's all I need.

Solved - no joy in google, the answer was in
http://www.ncix.com/forums/index.php?mode=section

I increased FSB from the default 100 mHz to 133 mHz in the "voltage and frequency" section, so cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz gave the desired speed.
