powernowd / stock kernels

Hi all,

Is it possible to run powernowd with the stock kernel?
 I'm getting the following when I try to start it:

-- snip --

Starting powernowd: Error writing file governor:
Invalid argument
Couldn't get per-cpu data: Illegal seek
PowerNowd encountered and error and could not start.
Please make sure that:
 - You are running a v2.5/v2.6 kernel or later
 - That you have sysfs mounted /sys
 - That you have the core cpufreq and
   modules loaded into your kernel
 - That you have the cpufreq driver for your cpu
   and that it works. (check dmesg for errors)
If all of the above are true, and you still have
please email the author: clemej@alum.rpi.edu
invoke-rc.d: initscript powernowd, action "start"
