I will try it first thing tomorrow. I also see:
dev.cpu.0.freq_levels: 1002/-1 939/-1 876/-1 814/-1 751/-1 688/-1 626/-1 563/-1 501/-1 438/-1 375/-1 313/-1 250/-1 187/-1 125/-1 62/-1
Shouldnt it show ~1800 as a level? This is the processor
CPU: AMD Sempron(tm) Processor 3200+ (1800.01-MHz 686-class CPU)
Origin = "AuthenticAMD" Id = 0x40ff2 Stepping = 2
Bios DSDT seems to be reporting only 1800mhz and 800mhz (from PSS_ values)
This is all very confusing, why do powerd try to set other values than the ones given by bios?
