i'm glad to find this great forum about linux-PHC,
i have a second-hand notebook with PM 1.4GHz(banias) cpu,
by following the docs and using the patch-file in this forum,
I got a low-temperature and low-noise notebook.
i've suceecefully patched the LFS-6.3 default 126.96.36.199 kernel,
#patch -p1 < linux-phc-0.3.1-kernel-vanilla-2.6.22.patch
seems this patch is for kernel 2.6.22, but it also works on 188.8.131.52.
after compiling and booting into the new kernel, now i can lower my cpu's voltage(change the vids) so it will be powersaving more.
so i give the following command in the console:
#echo powersave >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
#echo 49 46 38 30 0 >/sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_vids
i felt this should work and quite satistfied with the very quiet and low-heating system, the LFS is still running fine, but i haven't tested it with heavy loads yet.
Thanks a lot, in the end.
In China, the source based distro LFS(either the book or the LiveCD)is very popular among linux lovers, it is also my distro of choice, and i'm a Chinese linux lover.
You can write down your success stories here (temperature decreasements, power savings, etc).
