Re: Turion 64 cpufreq

I use 32 bits Debian on the HP L2000 with Turion 64 so your mileage
may vary with the 64 bit flavor.  From memory all I needed was:

apt-get install powernowd
echo powernow-k8 >> /etc/modules
echo cpufreq_userspace  >> /etc/modules
(reboot, or manually "modprobe" these modules)

If you use Gnome there is a nice pannel applet that will monitor the
CPU speed.  

The powernowd normally idles the CPU 800MHz and jumps it up to 2GHz
when needed.
