    Default cpufreq module not supported

    Hi there,
    My name is Dimitar,I'm from Bulgaria, so I'm sorry if my English is not good enough.
    There is my problem:
    I've got notbook Assus X50R Intel Core Duo T2450 2000MHz,15 days before I have installed SUSE 11.
    When I start the notbook there is appear a notice -"cpufreq module not supported "
    After starting KDE I can see that the kernels are working on 100% bar frequency.
    The processor is heating like an oven and the ventilators are working non stop.
    After upgrading of the BIOS to the newest version the problem is still there.
    Few days before I realised that after typing the commandthe "modprobe acpi-cpufreq" problem was solved.
    My question is how could I make this command automatic ?
    Best Regards

    Add it to /etc/init.d/boot.local.

    The processor is Celeron 2,2GHz Northwood, is it not supporting frequency scaling?

    that might be a great question to ask on an Intel forum..

    or, you could try googling, i did and found no place on intel.com
    where that CPU and the terms "frequency scaling" appeared on the same
    page: http://tinyurl.com/yhwsx9s returns "Your search - site:intel.com
    Celeron 2,2GHz Northwood frequency scaling - did not match any documents."

    perhaps you could change the search string some and find more..
