Big apology for posting such a beginner question.
QUESTION: Which processor to choose when configuring kernel?
With my penguin, lshw says
product: Intel(R) Celeron(R) M CPU 410 @ 1.46GHz
vendor: Intel Corp.
physical id: 4
bus info: cpu@0
width: 32 bits
capabilities: fpu fpu_exception wp vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic
sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss tm pbe constant
_tsc up pni monitor tm2 xtpr
Vendor ID: "GenuineIntel"; CPUID level 10
Type 0 - Original OEM
Family 6 - Pentium Pro
Model 14 -
Extended brand string: "Intel(R) Celeron(R) M CPU 410 @ 1.46GHz"
CLFLUSH instruction cache line size: 8
I am using P4/Celelon(P4..)/ P4-M/Xeon and do not see major problem, but CPU freq scaling is not working, and while troubleshooting I am totally lost. (web search gives me too many, kernel documentation is not quite helpful, wikipedia is not either.) I also do not know which driver to use with cpu freq scaling...
Any suggestion will be appreciated!
