Package: powernowd
Version: 0.96-2
Severity: minor

There is not enough documentation to get one started.

# invoke-rc.d powernowd restart
Restarting powernowd:
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/cpuinfo_max_freq: No such file or

PowerNowd encountered and error and could not start.
Please make sure that:
 - You are running a v2.6.7 kernel or later

yes, 2.6.12

 - That you have sysfs mounted /sys

yes, sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)

 - That you have the core cpufreq and cpufreq-userspace
   modules loaded into your kernel

# lsmod|grep cpu
cpufreq_powersave       1600  0
cpufreq_userspace       4412  0
I suppose. You had better be more specific.

 - That you have the cpufreq driver for your cpu loaded,
   and that it works. (check dmesg for errors)

Better give some examples there. This was a thinkpad r50e.
Without concrete directions, many users can't bridge the knowledge gap.

Not enough information in READMEs etc.
