changing Frequency Scaling Monitor? in chrome os


hi there
i`ve been using this command

Code:
sudo gedit /etc/init.d/ondemand
(in linux mint and ubuntu)

to open the textfile where i could change the Frequency Scaling Monitor to "performance".

i`ve tried the same in chrome os but it wont allow me. (Chrome OS Linux 1.0.648 RC)

is it possible? could somebody help?

thanks in advance. kindly gnimmelf

Chrome OS is a very minimal and highly customized Linux system, commands that you would use on a normal Linux OS will do no good. In this case, you can't make changes to /etc, gedit is not available in Chrome OS, and I wouldn't even be so sure that frequency scaling is supported yet.

You could do a custom build of Chrome OS to address all of these issues, but that is probably a lot more work than you are willing to do for this.

Its a lot more work than im able to do! im yust a rookie who found some usefull comands.
its a shame though frequency scaling isnt supported, my mint 9 is realy fast, the fastest i could find, using this option (changing the monitor to performance).
Ive benched it with hardinfo and nothing "comes close", and i would really like to see how fast Chrome OS could get.

thanks for the reply though! nice clean and informational.

kind regards Gnimm Elf

changing Frequency Scaling Monitor

i installed cpufreq and used this command.

Code:
sudo cpufreq-set --governor ondemand
changing ondemand to performance. and it worked on the first cpu but not the second, and not on restart.
then someone on another forum gave me these

Code:
cpufreq-set --cpu0 --governor ondemand
Code:
cpufreq-set --cpu1 --governor ondemand
they gave folowing error

PHP Code:
gnimm@dhcppc2:~> cpufreq-set --cpu0 --governor ondemand
cpufreq
-setukendt flag '--cpu0'
cpufrequtils 006cpufreq-set (CDominik Brodowski 2004-2009

invalid or unknown argument
Usage
cpufreq-set [options]
Options:
-
c CPU, --cpu CPU number of CPU where cpufreq settings shall be modified
-d FREQ, --min FREQ new minimum CPU frequency the governor may select
-u FREQ, --max FREQ new maximum CPU frequency the governor may select
-g GOV, --governor GOV new cpufreq governor

Notes
:
1. Omitting the -or --cpu argument is equivalent to setting it to zero
2. The 
-f FREQ, --freq FREQ parameter cannot be combined with any other parameter
except the 
-c CPU, --cpu CPU parameter
3. FREQuencies can be passed in Hz
kHz (default), MHzGHz, or THz
by postfixing the value with the wanted unit name
without any space
(FREQuency in kHz =^ Hz 0.001 =^ MHz 1000 =^ GHz 1000000).
