Totally clueless in cpufreq, cpufreqd, acpi land.
This just seems WAY too simple a concept for the great volumes of information out there on the subject, none of which actually gets me working.
I just want to set my cpu to ondemand scaling. I don't care how at this point.
Some points of total confusion:
1) what is the difference between cpufreq and cpufreqd?
2) why is it sometimes acpi-cpufreq and others acpi_cpufreq
3) where is the configuration file if I use cpufreq (i.e. not cpufreqd)?
4) should I just be using cpufreqd...how?
This is maddeningly frustrating. Please help.
