    SubjectChanging CPU Speed while running Linux
    Hi there,

    on my Elan410 based System it is very easy to change the CPU clock speed by
    means od two outb commands.

    I was wondering, if it does some harm to the Kernel if the CPU is
    reprogrammed using a different CPU clock speed, while the system is up and

    If so, is there a possibility to tell the Kernel that the clock speed has
    been changed by means of a particular Kernel call?

    If not, where would I put some code to do this at system boot?

    Is /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/setup.S the right place for something like

    Thanks for hints
