  1. Frequency Scaling

    I have a 3.6 GHz Pentium D overclocked to 4.0 GHz. In openSUSE 10.2,
    the frequency scaling just goes between 2.4 and 3.6. I have tried
    echoing a larger number to
    /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_max_freq, but it just
    resets to 36000000. Any suggestions to change the scaling profiles?

    I believe it's hard coded in the bios.
