I installed Arch 0.6 on an IBM T23, and promptly upgraded to the default 2.6.6-1 kernel using pacman. I also used pacman to install cpufreqd from the online repositories. Now that I have cpufreqd configured, and launched from the rc.conf file (along with the speedstep-ich module), how do I verify its operation? cat /proc/cpuinfo only indicates the top maximum speed (1000 mhz) my laptop cpu will run at.
you have to use lm_sensors. Load the i2c modules your motherboard has (can't help you on that, but probably google can ). This are the modules I have to load: i2c-isa i2c-sensor w83627hf. Then, uncoment the /sys part of fstab. Then open /sys/bus/i2c, and browse till you find the info. You can also use the "sensors" executable (i haven't used it, so you're alone again). Personally, I use a Gdesklet that displays my sistem info (fan RPMs, Tº, and voltage). You can find it here:http://gdesklets.gnomedesktop.org
PS: Don't know if I really gave you an answer, hope so.

Or if you want a method that doesn't need i2c, you can check /proc/sys/cpu/0/speed.

Thanks for the help. Running cat /proc/sys/cpu/0/speed did the trick. I had tried gkx86info plugin in gkrelm for X only to get some pretty weird results.
