Hi,

I am running into two problems with the most recent stable kenel. The first is that it does not recognize mh HIGHMEM memory and second it cannot adjust my cpu speed with load (I'm running FC4 on an IBM T41 ThinkPad with 1.5GB of memory).

here's some output from /var/log/messages

I don't find anything in the log related to the speedstep issue, but I get a window that pops up telling me "
cpu frequency scaling unsupported"

If anyone has any ideas what's going on, I'd love to hear them.
