Hello everyone!
Soory to harp on about it. But now cpufreqd is running and says, that it
loaded the extra module powernow-k8 and it runs, ps -ax shows that. But I have
no effect. /proc/cpuinfo always says 3000.0mHz. Find below my cpufreqd.conf,
only special thing I did was to change the program based scheduling. Here's
lsmod output:
# lsmod
Module Size Used by cpufreq_userspace 1488 0
cpufreq_conservative 7644 0 cpufreq_powersave 618 0

Kernel version is 2.6.38 (self-compiled)
Distro: Debian (Squeeze)
So what have I done wrong? I want my normal system to run at 800.0mHz, I
know, that it can do it, it did before cpufreqd started working. I only
want/need the full power, when heavy sound processing is in work. Where did I
behave foolishly here?
Warmly yours
Julien
