Kernel Setup

For all variants selects this options:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Processor type and features  --->
    Subarchitecture Type ()  --->
        (X) PC-compatible
    Processor family ()  --->
        (X) Pentium M
    [ ] Generic x86 support
    [*] Supported processor vendors ---->
        [*]   Support Intel processors

If you have a single core processor, add this:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Processor type and features  --->
    [ ] Symmetric multi-processing support

If you have a dual core processor, add this:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Processor type and features  --->
    [*] Symmetric multi-processing support
    (2) Maximum number of CPUs (2-256)
    [ ] SMT (Hyperthreading) scheduler support
    [*] Multi-core scheduler support

If you're running your system in 32bit mode, add this:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Processor type and features  --->
    [*] Machine Check Exception
    < >   Check for non-fatal errors on AMD Athlon/Duron / Intel Pentium 4

Or if you're running 64bit mode, add this:

Linux Kernel Configuration:
Processor type and features  --->
    -- Machine check support	 
    [*] Intel MCE features
Executable file formats / Emulations  --->
    [*] IA32 Emulation

CPU Frequency Scaling

See the separate guide on CPU Frequency Scaling.

Hardware Sensors

The kernel has a driver for the temperature sensor inside the cpu called coretemp.

Linux Kernel Configuration: Coretemp
Device Drivers  --->
    Hardware Monitoring support  --->
        <M> Hardware Monitoring support
        <M> Intel Core (2) Duo/Solo temperature sensor

Rebuild your kernel and follow the Lm sensors guide.
