The default torsmo configuration file - /home/dsl/.torsmorc - should contain a line that displays either "ac" or battery data. I think this is set to display acpi information by default.
Do you know if your laptop uses "apm" or "acpi" power management? If it uses apm, then the .torsmorc file can probably be modified to suit - see the comments in .torsmorc or on the torsmo man pages on-line.
If you have a pentium m processor, you should be able to use the "powerstep" feature as well as/instead of throttling. If I remember correctly, the acpid mydsl extension has a script to change the powerstep setting when the power is disconnected.
To check if you can change the powerstep and/or throttling settings manually, you need to look in (for example) /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/performance - if there is something there, you can change it by:
where "x" is 1 to 7 on my machine.
|Code Sample |
|$ sudo echo x > /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/performance|
