Ahhhh, this is all starting to make sense to me. My laptop seemed very
slow with FC2. I think I have seen others comment that they where having
similar problems. After looking through this thread I discovered that my
CPU seemed to always be set to the lowest frequency, even when plugged
in. After playing around with the stuff in
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq I was able to set my CPU to it
highest speed and it soo much faster. My governor is set to "userspace"
so I guess my problem is that I am not actually running a user space
governor. So,

Is there a user space governor that comes with FC2?


Someone mentioned a Gnome CPU frequency applet, I can't seem to find it
on my laptop. Is this something I need to install separate?
