Re: ACPI with AMD64

I have same cpu but with home brew kernel (I don't see what you have)

funny, I only have a CPU1 there, even though I only have, euh ... 1 cpu. 
(Wel... maybe not so funny ;o)
Anyway it also says <not supported> there.

But, I seem to remember the proc interface for this was somehow depricated.

Check if you seen anything in /sys (obviously, you should have the sys 
filesystem mounted):

cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/stats/time_in_state
2000000 292495
1800000 6574
1000000 704969

I surmise from this that on my system most of the time is spent at 1 GHz.
Don't know what the time scale is though (bogomips ?)
