When trying to modprobe powernow-k8 I get the following:

FATAL: Error inserting powernow_k8 (/lib/modules/2.6.15-1-486/kernel/arch/i386/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/powernow-k8.ko): No such device
And in syslog I get:
powernow-k8: Found 1 AMD Athlon 64 / Opteron processors (version 1.50.4)
powernow-k8: BIOS error - no PSB or ACPI _PSS objects
I have read about this problem and people suggest turning on Cool
'n Quiet in BIOS or/and update BIOS. I think I have tried these things...
Kernel: 2.6.15-1-486 (Debian)
CPU: Athlon 64, 3000+, 2 GHz, Socket 754
MB: ASUS, K8V-MX updated with BIOS 0207 (originally 0204)
Do I need an amd64-compiled kernel?
Is it enough with BIOS setting "Cool N'Quiet" set to "Enabled"?
yes, i think so.
Any clues welcome, thanks in advance,
You have the wrong kernel. Use linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7
or use AMD64 port of debian.
then use linux-image-2.6.15-1-amd64-k8
But you have to reinstall the whole thing, just installing the amd64
kernel is not enough.
