This has been an issue with me, too.  I recently got a new dual core
laptop, and am running Fedora 14, and nothing I've come across yet has
disabled CPU throttling.  It still insists that speed scaling is
controlled by the "ondemand" governor, and I can't even change CPU
speeds with the cpu-speed tools.


My blog, with commentary on a variety of things, including audio,
mixing, equipment, etc, is at:
Staat heißt das kälteste aller kalten Ungeheuer.  Kalt lügt es auch;
und diese Lüge kriecht aus seinem Munde: 'Ich, der Staat, bin das Volk.'
