I get two error messages when my system is booting:
Code:
Starting pbbuttonsd...
ERROR: Can't open mixer device [/dev/mixer]. No such file or directory.

and
Code:
Starting powernowd
powernowd: Error writing file governor
/etc/init.d/powernowd : line 11: 4874 Segmentation fault        /usr/sbin/powernowd -q    ${POWERNOWD_OPTS}

What do these mean?

The first is because you built pbbuttonsd with oss support but you don't have the OSS /dev/mixer available. Either use OSS support, use ALSA or turn off pbbuttonsd's sound support.

The second is because you don't have frequency governor support in your kernel.

I don't have oss listed in my USE flags nor does it seem to be located in my use.defaults. Why would it have built with support for oss?

Then check your pbbuttonsd.conf, what is set for SoundSystem? I'm guessing OSS.

When configuring my kernel, I see options for the following:
Code:
<> 'powersave' governor
<> 'userspace' governor
<> 'ondemand' cpufreq policy governor
<> 'conservative' policy governor

Is it necessary to compile the first three directly into the kernel?

At least compile in the userspace governor, that way the userspace tools can change the frequency.

Yes i resolv the same problems. Add oss flag in make.conf and re-emerge alsa-driver.

One question, if i use alsa, what is the mixer for pbbuttons? or install the alsa-oss and it works?

Thx.
