Description of problem:
First of all one would expect, following a general schema,
/etc/sysconfig/cpuspeed for that configuration file and not
/etc/cpuspeed.conf as it is now.
The second issue is that, AFAICS at least with i686 kernel,
currently there are two "cpu/cpufreq" modules. Namely
acpi-cpufreq.ko and p4-clockmod.ko. The first is used,
if only possible, by /etc/init.d/cpuspeed if no other driver module
is specified; which really leaves p4-clockmod. A default
# uncomment this and set to the name of your CPUFreq module
Why not "p4-clockmod" at least?
'VMAJOR=1' and 'VMINOR=1' also do not seem to serve any useful
Some documentation would also be nice. 'cpuspeed --help' printed
on stderr, so sending that to 'less' is not straightforward, is not
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
The latest rawhide cpuspeed build (1.48.fc7) carries what I think is a far more
useful config file. Adding further documentation will be tracked under bug
172655, closing this one out. Once we've had the rawhide build stabilized for a
little while, I'll push it for fc6 as well.
