no CPU frequency scaling /no cpufreqd.conf , what to do?
I am planning to switch completely to Slackware,
one of the last things left is the CPU frequency scaling.
I have a AVERATEC laptop, Sempron 2600+.
When I install SUSE 9.2/10.0,I get automatically an icon(battery or plug), clicking on it I change my powersave options, CPU freq. options etc.
There is this YAST power management module, too.
In Slackware I compiled and installed 188.8.131.52 kernel, and first I didn't even get /proc/acpi/thermal_zone directory, and KDE control center told:
"partial ACPI installation".
Ok, as I found out in the LQ forums, one has to build ACPI features in the kernel, ( I had them as modules on Suse, and it worked fine)
Ok, I recompiled kernel with ACPI built in, now I have ACPI installed.
But there is no CPU freq. scaling.
/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor -doesn't exist
/proc/cpufreq -doesn't exist
/etc/cpufreqd.conf -doesn't exist
Question: what about cpu freuqency control daemons?
Are there no such daemons/scripts in the default SLackware 10.2 install?
And if there are some, how will I enable them?
I see that there are several utilities for CPU scaling: like cpufreqd, cpuspeedy, cpudyn etc. And what about powersave utilites -do they include CPU scaling functions?
In other words: if I have to get something, which is not in the custom install, which program will deal with ALL powersave features(including scaling)?
