Again, this only happens with Sara's home directory brought from FC5.  A new
user account doesn't have this problem.

(ok, I have a guess, this is probably because the old applet is trying to use
the userspace governer that possibly needs special permission with FC6?  in FC6
the default governer is the new ondemand one.)

I have the same problem. After software update system cannot change CPU
frequency anymore!.. Before the update everything worked fine.
Comment 3 Ray Strode [halfline] 2008-03-18 14:40:56 EDT

We no longer support Fedora Core 6 and I am currently trying to get my open bug
count down to a more manageable state.  I'm going to close this bug as WONTFIX.
 If this issue is still a concern for you, would you mind trying to reproduce on
a supported version of Fedora and reopening?

(this is a mass message)
