cpu speed governor and wireless queries
i have installed bluewhite64 (64bit slackware port) on my compaq v3133au laptop (AMD turion64x2).
The laptop comes with a Broadcom BCM43xx a/b/g wireless card.
Also compiled a new 2.6.20 customized kernel for my hardware.
1. During bootup, i observe that the broadcom wireless adaptor is detected and the corresponding bcm43xx modules get loaded. However, I cant see any wireless interface using "ifconfig". I also tried to use the KDE wifitools but it couldn't detect the card.
2. The kernel that i compiled has module support for cpufreq and userspace governors. I load the module using the
and it gets loaded. However, the CPU still runs at the full 1.6GHz speed.
Also in the sys file system, I am not able to find the cpufreq entries in the /sys/.../cpu0/ location.
