Re: E2180 Desktop CPU support

If you use Gnome you can try the panel widget called ... hmm yes .. how is it called in english... I don't know, but you would find it. If you want to do that on a terminal you can read available frequencies from /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu[?]/cpufreq/scaling_available_frequencies and then just writ...

Re: Thinkpad X61s (Core 2 Duo L7500)

DonGnome is right. The default VIDs are calibrated at manufacturing time (I am sorry for not having the source of that information here but I am sure it was in one of the CPU's white-papers available from intel). For sure, those DIE's that meets the requirements for a LV / ULV CPU may be used for th...

Re: Patch for 2.6.34 appears to be broken

PHC can not set values if the processor driver decides to be "SYSTEM_IO_CAPABLE" instead of "SYSTEM_MSR_CAPABLE". It is telling the system how to control the CPU. Reading/Writing to the MSR's still works because it does not depends on that capability. The patch edishtron linked above should fix that...

Re: Reverting to defaults?

You just need to set your values again after suspend. That can be done using a simple script. You will possibly notice that the values for CPU0 are not reverted. Thats because CPU0 stays online in suspend mode while all other CPUs are shut down. Thats why they forget their (new) values and take the ...

Re: Reverting to defaults?

After a Suspend the Kernel gets reset and I think it reloads all its modules. So the Frequency Tables are re-read from the system by the ACPI subsystem. Thats why it appears that your system now uses the default values again. (and it really does). We are ware of that fact but we do not have a soluti...

Re: PHC Patch Installs No Files

About the highest and lowest ... thats okay. I was not sure those values really mark the highest and lowest values. Intel does not provide many documentation... unfortunately. You are right, the ppa-Kernel does depends on cpufreq-util... but I was not sure you are using that kernel. So it is strange...

Re: PHC Patch Installs No Files

Sounds like your modules are not loaded at system boot. Thats okay... you are running Ubuntu. You have two possibilities: 1 - insert the module to /etc/modules 2 - install cpufreq-utils. It is a script that automatically loads the necessary modules at startup. It was part of the Ubuntu system until ...

Re: Releases

An update happened, again.

I am sorry for breaking the last package - it included an old Makefile instead of the newest one.
No no... I am not employed at Microsoft!

Thanks for fs4000 for notifying me :)

Re: PHC Patch Installs No Files

Strange, but try "modprobe acpi-cpufreq". This should be an alias for phc-intel. If that does not work, too you can also insert a module "manually" (just to give you a working system until we know whats your problem) using insmod (sudo insmod /path/to/module/phc-intel.ko). After "make install" you m...
