Package: powernowd
Version: 0.90-2
Severity: normal

The README and the man page both state that powernowd scales voltage

The README.Debian says you need to mount sysfs in fstab (see below), 
but this isn't true for recent 2.6 kernels at least. Since 2.6.4 I've
been running with no such definition in fstab and /sys works fine.
I just installed 2.6.7 on a new machine and /sys got created automatically.

Thanks for the good work -- powernowd works great! Pity about the absence
of voltage scaling though.


Out of date information from README.Debian:

You also need to have the sysfs file system mounted, so that the daemon can
find the interface to the frequency scaling support in the kernel.  If that
isn't already done, mkdir /sys and add an entry to /etc/fstab that looks
something like this:

        sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
