After upgrading to 3.9 kernel it doesn't work, shows N/A MHz. I'm on Intel Sandybridge x64. Probably because of the new scaling driver intel_pstate.

I find this plugin very useful. Does anybody have a patch or an alternative plugin? Thanks!

Nicely done.
One little nitpick: I can't see the full text until I set a width of 95 for gkrellm which is quite wide. As of now I see "CPU0 @ 1.6" instead of "CPU0 @ 1.60 GHz".
Would it be possible to shorten the text to something like "0: 1.60GHz" for example, or is that too non-descriptive? I guess making it configurable would be too much work.

thank you, i updated package.
it looks like the sf page was not created by original author of gkrellm-gkfreq. and his 2.0 version does not work. nonetheless i found interesting the idea of showing multiple frequency labels (one per cpu) so i created a little patch to implement the feature. please post your comments and report any bugs :)

Neither the homepage nor the files don't exist anymore on the referenced domain.
I have posted an updated PKGBUILD @ http://aur.pastebin.com/kQgNecGP which refers a "backup" of sorts of the original package on SourceForge.

There is also a 2.0 package there, but I could not get it to work at all (displays just N/A for every CPU), so it's probably better to stay at 1.0.
