Bug Description

Binary package hint: powernowd

In Hardy, the check in the initscript for non-support of "ondemand" doesn't work, causing "performance" to be used. This patch fixes it. Tested on a PIII-M 700 with speedstep-smi.

  * debian/init.d: Don't use ondemand governor if it is not working
    for the particular hardware. Thanks to Daniel Gimpelevich for the
    improved patch. (LP: #223812, #229027)
  * debian/control: Changed package description to better match
    what the package is doing in Ubuntu. (Using powernowd only as
    a fallback.)
