Processor Troubles...


Well, just got done installing Suse 9.0 on a Satellite 5005-s507. And, several things are now, dead. First off, the processor seems content to contantly throttle down to 50% and less performace, regardless of any settings applied to the cpufreqd.

This has the secondary effect of killing my sound, since sounds don't play so well when the processor is throttled down to less than half performance.

Anyone else having problems with cpufreq settings? Throttling? and power management due to acpi?

Perhaps this link can help you:

www.linux-laptop.net

Somewhere in one of the forums I saw some people with the same problems and also a solution. I'm not sure where but could be newbies and it's less than 2 weeks ago. Look for SUSE.

oh well, I browsed around, checked the past 4 months of forums, then looked through the other forums they have... nothing on suse. Saw a couple alsa posts but they turned out to be just for bad config files...

Sorry you see a lot and if it's not one off your machines you don't make a copy.


This Toshiba site gives some information on linux support

http://newsletter.toshiba-tro.de/main/index.html

What struck me was the next :

This machine is one of the first with "legacy free" BIOS which means all devices must be configured by the OS.
The BIOS just configures the boot devices. That's all.
A working ACPI implementation is required to get the other devices working.
For LINUX, ACPI is still under development.

WE still try to get a workaround.

So it seems there are some troubles.....

However in linux-laptop.net there was someone who did it but with another distro................

Got something mre for you :
In the article at the laptop side is the following :

NOTE: If your kernel/distro already has ACPI support (Mandrake and SuSE for example), this is maybe the only step you will need to do. If you don't, you will see the "keventd" process using up to 99% of your CPU, slowing down the entire OS.

So I should say read the article
You can come there from the laptopside, bur there is also a direct link:
