Re: [vox-tech] weird boot message

The most recent copy of Linux Magazine has an article on laptops, and it
seems ACPI functions are what you're looking for.  To paraphrase the
article: APM doesn't provide the interface to power features such as CPU
throttling; what you need is ACPI, but since it's still young and still
being developed, you should go to the ACPI4Linux home page
for more info.

Yep, this is one of the BIOS based systems that I was writing about.
