Re: Is PHC also for desktop CPU's?

We are not sure because we wre not able to proof ourself (we do not have an E-Series CPU). Some E-series have been reported to be able to undervolted, some not. That depends on the CPU I think. But you can easily try it. If your CPU is not capable of setting VIDs the PHC patch will tell you. You can...

Re: Patch for 2.6.34 appears to be broken

I apologize for the late answear. The message "no such device" normally appears when the cpufreq driver decides (by whatever) that your CPU is not capable of setting control data (vids, fids, etc) through ACPI. It is strange that this happen to you only with the new kernel. Within the PHC-patch we o...

Re: Patch for Athlon64, Opteron, Turion64, DirectTrans, & MSR

Please note that PHCTool is currently not maintained.

I apologize that I still can not provide a new alternative.

I hope someone with some time to spend will take care of a GUI.

Until then you need to use the console tools. They give you all you need (but not a GUI at all :) )

Re: 2.6.33-git2 + phc-intel-0.3.2.10 (+ Makefile fixes) problem

You have the acpi-cpufreq driver build-in into your kernel. This driver need to b replaced by PHC (whis is just a modified acpi-cpufreq driver).

You need to build or get a kernel where this driver is compiled as module so you can replace it with phc-intel.

Re: Now What?

Now you need to find out what are the best VID-Values for your system (" how much you can undervold each speed step") and than just make sure those values are applied each time you start your PC. You are right. Howto's are hard to find (they are all here in the forum but they are hard to find among ...

Re: phc-files missing in /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/

In theory you can use it on any kernel you'd like to. But the Ubuntu default kernel for example has the cpufreq-drivers compiled-in, not as a module so you can not replace it. Thats why we have the ppa with ubuntu kernels. They are like the default ones but the cpufreq drivers are compiled as module...

Re: Can't execute make on 2.6.33-rcX

I will add that to the next release and upload it. Thanks for that guys.

You are really helping a lot with that.

I guess the "patch" is for kernels >= 2.6.33 ? Do you have a simple Idea how to deal with both, Kernels <= 2.6.32 and Kernels >= 2.6.33 ??

Re: linux-phc doesn't show an effect

You did everything well. But the values in the sysfs-files are not permanent. After reboot or after suspend/resume they reset to the default ones. I am not sure if your trick with rc.local works. It should, in theory. Maybe the module is loaded later? Maybe you should investigate it. There is an ini...
