The source code is there, but there are no binaries. This probably means
that it failed to build, which is sometimes the case for the unsupported
software in universe.

Which kernel options would you change?

The default kernel has cpufreq support which works with powernowd. Why do
you need the obsolete and deprecated /proc/cpufreq interface?
Regarding the SCSI drivers, those cost you about 3 megabytes of disk space,
and nothing else. Surely this is not worth the time that you will spend
rebuilding your kernel time and time again.

How did this happen? Was this the yaboot.conf which was generated for you
at install time? I just checked my /etc/yaboot.conf, and it is correct in
I do not think that yaboot.conf is automatically modified after
installation. Did you edit yaboot.conf at all? Was it copied from another
system? Please send a complete copy of your /etc/yaboot.conf.
