cpudyn: no /sys/ directory


I am trying to install cpudyn on my laptop (IBM X31). I am not sure do I need need because my battery is running pretty long with kernel 2.6 (around 4 hours). ... but I would like to try cpudyn to improve this time.

cpudyn reguires /sys/devices/.... but I don't have /sys directory.

any ideas what to do???


p.s.: slackware 9.1

As root , create a /sys directory.
Add following line to /etc/fstab:
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
And mount it with 'mount /sys'
That's it
