Hello guys,

I have problem with my laptop Acer Aspire 5102 WLMi which has AMD
Turion™ 64 X2 dual-core TL-50 1.6 GHz with 1.5 GB of ram.

I'm running i386 6.2-RC1 upgraded to 6.2-PRELEASE via RELENG6 tag
since I don't have more than 4 GB of ram.

I have these lines add to my custom generic kernel
options         SMP
device          cpufreq
device          smbus

I have this in my rc.conf

But the the laptop even doesn't boot some times,  and if booted it
hangs all the time, till I hashed out powerd_enable="YES"


Had the same problem where powerd would hang my HP Pavilion dv8000
system.  I worked arround the problem by using the following in

powerd_flags="-a maximum -b maximum"

Of course this makes powered do nothing when on battery.  What I think
is happening is that powered is too aggressive in downgrading the
clock speed, that it eventually sets the clock to a value that is so
low that the system stops responding.
