see 'checkconfig' below.

from this;
>>modprobe -c|grep acpi
> alias acpi acpi-cpufreq

you have module and 'lsmod|grep cpufreq' will show if it is loaded

in your first post, you wrote;
FATAL: Error inserting acpi_cpufreq
No such device
is this from boot or 'modprobe acpi-cpufreq'?

for you info, have a good look at 'man modprobe' and note '-C' and '-f'.

>>chkconfig --list|grep cpuspeed
> cpuspeed        0:off   1:on    2:on    3:on    4:on    5:off   6:off

this shows your services have 'cpuspeed' turned off for 'level 5'.
should be _on_.

remove 'debug' from kernel command line.

if i read this right, you have 8 steps of cpu clock, but not 'speedstep'.

not familiar with 'speedstep'. suggest you use *linux google'
[change 'hl=en' to language of choice if you do not want english]

for line 'all these words:' use "speedstep-ich AND acer", without "".
have a read thru.

must leave out and let you play for a while.

time here is 1942 hrs utc. i need to unload some more of my 'treasures'
from a 43 foot trailer before 'dark thirty'.

have fun. good luck. later.
