Windows: 4-5 hour battery life, Gentoo : ~2:30 battery life
Hi, I just began running gentoo and my main concern has been the lack of battery life. I managed to pull 4-5 hours running windows, and now it is about half that.
I installed some power options, and find myself running these drivers:
According to my friend, cpu frequency scaling should improve battery life, and according to what I can tell, it should be installed. How can I check if it is working (he said it might be broken), and if it is, why is my battery life still terrible?
Thanks so much!
