Re: problems in installing PHC DKMS package for AMD processors

It's a dual core, as long as they're together, they don't need to feel lonely! ;) First I want to release an updated version of the current driver (soon) and then I'll focus on these processors, so just wait a bit longer. Initially, I am planning to support only write access to phc_vids and maybe ph...

Re: build phc-k8 failed in kernel 2.6.36

mperf.ko is an additional module that has been added to powernow-k8 since kernel 2.6.35 and therefore has been added to phc-k8. Basically it's used for intelligently handling the "Turbo Core" feature in AMD processors that support it. I added it because I wanted to use the latest powernow-k8 code an...

Re: DKMS Install Not Working

You forgot to mention which driver you are using, but if it's the phc-k8 driver, then please try the v0.4.3b1 driver, it can be found in the test-releases topic in the PHC Downloads section. I want this driver to be tested first before I release it officially as v0.4.3, but I am planning to just rel...

Re: build phc-k8 faild in kernel 2.6.36

I just uploaded a phc-k8 0.4.3 beta 1 driver to "Test-releases" in the download section that fixes this. Could you test it as well and see if it's okay?

Re: build phc-k8 failed in kernel 2.6.36

As a workaround you can delete all the lines with ".owner = THIS_MODULE" that cause these errors as a temporary workaround - but be sure NOT to remove the one line with .owner that does not trigger an error. However, I am working on an updated version of phc-k8, but I'm still working on it to make i...

Re: Phenom II Support

I'm sorry, but I haven't really had any time to spend on this. Actually I'm still struggling with the newer Phenom Dynamic Speed boost features, I have to sort these out first. Also, since my Acer notebook has been away for repair (and now again), I do not have a proper testing platform. (But for th...

Re: Can't set vids by hand but phctools can.

You cannot change the default values, they are only there for reference, e.g. for undoing:

Code: Select all

cat phc_default_vids|sudo tee phc_vids
The "phc_default_vids" isn't something you can set, they are hardcoded in either the processor, the ACPI definition and/or the BIOS.

Re: Compile Error phc-k8 since 2.6.33

I'm aware of the problem but I haven't had time to solve this... In the Makefile, as a workaround you can change the reference to "include/linux/utsrelease.h" into "include/*/utsrelease.h". The file "utsrelease.h" used to be in "include/linux/" before 2.6.33, but now it is in "include/generated/".
