Re: Via Nano undervolting...

We have no experiences with VIA nano processors. In theory, it may be possible that this CPU is somewhat compatible with our patches. But I can not remember seeing someone before who had tried it. IF you have some time you could simple try it. I guess the VIA nano processor uses acpi-cpufreq as its ...

Re: Problems in installing PHC intel....

It is possible that crashing a system causes a defective file-system. But modern file-systems should prevent that. You could try to use a boot-cd/usb-stick to boot a Linux system and then run a file-system check on the partition where grub is installed to. You can also try to reinstall grub (if it's...

Re: PHC Ubuntu Kernel PPA ships bogus utsrelease.h

Interesting but very annoying. I marked it STICKY so others will take notice and I will remember investigating that. I do not think its the ppa by itself but the ubuntu kernel (but I may be wrong with that) since the ppa is build from the original ubuntu source with only the necessary changes to use...

Re: Problems in installing PHC intel....

rmmod and modprobe do not tell you anything if everything worked so I assume it really loaded the phc_intel module. You can check that with "dmesg" which should tell you something or if there are a lot of files under /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/ then you can assume it is working (to that pa...

Re: Problems in installing PHC intel....

Did you also run

# make

after "make prepare" ?

Re: Dell M4400 w/Intel P8600 not wanting to change to VIDS

Heya,

the Intel Core2 CPU does not allow different voltages for each core.
So it adjusts the voltage to the highest value one of the cores currently needs ( even if the others do not need them .. it does not harm them ).

Try to adjust the same VIDs to both cores, that should work.

Re: I need help undervolting a Centrino in Lucid

I am not sure if this is already in a (ubuntu-)kernel. The patch entry is from 17.06.2010 but the latest kernel RC (2.6.35-rc3) is from 12.06.2010 and it does NOT contain that patch. But you can easily patch any kernel version you like since it is only a single line of code to be replaced. For 2.6.3...

Re: I need help undervolting a Centrino in Lucid

This often happens on Pentium-M systems whose BIOS is not well-made and therefore the ACPI system decides to work in a mode we can not alter the voltage tables. BUT!! There is a "bug" known in the kernel that makes it deciding to use that mode even if your system could run in the other mode where PH...
