SubjectRe: Bogus BogoMIPS on ThinkPad? [Entertainment for Linus]

Thanks for the pointer to tpctl (ThinkPad configuration tools for Linux).
It allowed me to change the default speed so I get 300 MHz at boot.

|| When my ThinkPad 600E boots Linux says that it has a 75 MHz CPU,
|| but my BIOS tells me it has a 300 MHz CPU -- whats the deal?
| Try tpctl. (

Using tpctl I was able to figure out that the key sequene FN+F11 can
be used to toggle power mode (the F11 key has faucet icon :-).

With my CPU at full speed a couple of other problems that I was having
have gone away. I was having problems with keyboard focus when I
switch X term windows and sometime X clients would get broken pipe
errors when starting up.
