I have vector linux light on a kid computer. I had a pII 233 and shelled out $15 or a 400 mhz cpu.
On reboot, the bios looks like 333 is highest is supports, so I chose that one. But bios still saying 266.
It boots fine, and seems twice as fast as old cpu, running vllight. It is benchmarking about same as the 700 comparison (280 mhz) better on some test and lesser on others.
I installed vcpufreq, but don't know where it installed to. Doing file fine turns up nothing. (other issue there is no create launcher on desktop and when I install programs, they never show up anywhere. I must creat copy of browser short cut and edit in leafpad.)
So apart from installer/shortcuts not working, will linux take advantage of the cpu despite the bios?
