KDE 3.5.1: Check CPU performance in SYSTEM tray
MEPIS 3.4.3 KDE 3.5.1 Kernel 2.6.15-1
Hardware: HP COmpagq nw8240 Pentium Centrino 2.13GHz 2G RAM 1G SWAP
Firstly, I wondering if such an application exists. GNOME has a couple that sit in your tray and tell you what the current CPU usage is. I kbow of command line "top" but would like to place in the system tray.
Second Q: on my laptop, the fan is constantly on. This is not the case when I am in Win XP. Also I had Ubuntu on this machine, and fan was perfectly quiet. Ihave done these maneouvres:
1. Upgraded BIOS (Before MEPIS installation)
2. added ACPI apps, kpowersave, klaptop, etc.
3. Chnaged the ACPI config to allow: enable CPU throttling, enable performance profiles, enable suspend. I have my CPU throttling set at 25%, but it just sems to be on and noisy.
says I am using 2-3% of CPU, and the app with the most CPU usage is xorg (v 6.9 I think??)
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
