This kind of software would be very useful in prolonging the battery time,
but I noticed that it does not work in my Powerbook G4 550 Mhz (aka TiBook
II aka Powerbook3,3) due to lack of kernel support for /proc/cpufreq.
Is this because the the hardware in this particlar model does not support
changing the cpu frequency, lack of specs or what? I noticed that most of
the other G4 Powerbook models are supported, including Powerbook3,2 and
Powerbook3,4. Is there something I could do to help get this working?
