but the one which finally broke the camel's back ...


Hmm, what kind of camel is that? A cigarret? Seriously, I have never heard of 2.6.31 failed to support CPU throttling, power management, suspend/resume etc. As I am currently using it with a very experimental nouveau driver for my NVIDIA card on a powerbook pro, and every thing works just fine.

If this really happens to you, sorry, but my suggestion is that do not pretend to be a pro if you do not have the expertice. Just wait for your distro to come up with a package, or, and even better, avoid using rawhide or similar experimental things. Just stay with a vanilla stable version of a distro.
