    AMD Dual Core X2 3800+ processor
    SuSe Linux 10.0 64 bit
    NVidia GeForce 6100 graphics driver

    KPowersave starts up with CPU frequency scaling set to 'dynamic' and I see a continuous screen flicker. If I change it to 'performance' or 'powersave' the flicker goes away. Problem is I have to do this everytime after I boot, so till there is a fix for this, how do I set the default CPU frquency scaling to anything other than 'dynamic'?

    Thanks

      Simply set CPUFREQUENCY="dynamic" to CPUFREQUENCY="performance" in /etc/sysconfig/powersave/scheme_performance . Of course depending on the scheme you are using.

      Of course, you could also use the YaST Powermanagement module.
