Re: Which debian packages should be installed on a debian edu laptop?

Thank you for that clue.

I've combined parts from the powernowd init.d script and the
cpufreq-detect.sh script into one init.d script loadcpufreq included
in the debian-edu-config package, and written a cfengine rule to get
cpufrequtils to turn on ondemand CPU frequency scaling.  I also made
sure the cpufrequtils is installed and enabled for all machines, and
not just laptops.  Schools want to save power to reduce their power
bill, so I figure it is useful also on desktops and servers.

The change will show up on the etch-test-dvd in a few minutes.
