Fedora 14 x86_64 on a Dell M1530

Post by pinsb » Sun 12. Dec 2010, 03:31

Got it working on a Dell M1530 with a T9500 2.6Ghz Dual Core by compiling the 2.6.36 x86_64 kernel and adding this as a module, quite a steep learning curve though.

Anyway temps on Dell reduced from 50-52 C on idle to about 40 C and peak load from about 98 C to 75 C so fairly spectacular.

This is a great concept and surely there's some way to get it sponsored into the Kernel directly? There's plenty of manufacturers who would benefit from it.

Good job and thanks.
