Re: Kernel 2.6.0test1 Mini-HOWTO
I am using 2.5.75 and am guessing that 2.6.0-test1 should be about the
The sysfs doesn't hurt 2.4 kernels and is not actually needed. I am

the cpufreq access. The sysfs gives access to the kernel data structures
The usbfs does matter if you also use usb file system on 2.4 since the
name has been changed from usbdevfs. There is back support for the old
name but I don't belive that forward support ;)
For me acpi works quite well with acpid and acpi. It does matter whether
you used the acpi patch for 2.4 kernels since the location of the files
with the patched kernels and 2.6 under the proc file system is different
