Athlon64, vidalinux, installing ondemand or powernow
I have just installed vidalinuxfor AMD64, which I have found to be very nice on my Sager np4750. However, I have also found it to be less supportive for all the hardware on my laptop than SuSE9.2 Pro was. The first thing that I want to do is get the cpu frequency scaling working properly, as at the moment, my laptop fans are screaming. Could someone point me in the direction of a very simplified, step-by-step guide to successfully get my processor to work properly? Or lay out the steps in this thread. I need a very basic approach, as I have never recompiled a kernel, used portage before or done a host of other things that would make this task easier :(
And then, of course, once that is taken care of, there is the question of ATi drivers, my bluetooth mx900, firefox.... woot!
