OK I didn't do something right because the cpufreq-info reports the same as when we started.
In konsole I put kdesu dolphin /etc/modprobe.preload powernow-k8 but not sure how to save I also tried the code first enter and then powernow-k8 and enter.
Maybe if things get running right I can learn more, sure running like crap right now.
Try from root konsole
;[root@fatman ~]# echo powernow-k8 >> /etc/modprobe.preload[root@fatman ~]# cat /etc/modprobe.preload
# /etc/modprobe.preload: kernel modules to load at boot time.
# This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
# to be loaded at boot time, one per line. Comments begin with
# a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
# this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY
# for old kernel use /etc/modules
pata_atiixppowernow-k8 <-- Success
Nothing to open other than the Konsole
terminal, then su
...<Enter> root password
when asked, <Enter>
then the above two commands
, to first add
the line, and then check
that it was successful
