So I am back at Ubuntu,

I allways wrote to you about one System I change and answer back, only for the Desktop System,
later I showed up I have a second system to compare and train the changes as well.

So just for Information:
under WinXP with Right Mark
- Desktop 800 MHz = 42 C Degrees
- mobile 800 MHz = 34 C
under Ubuntu gen-PHC
- Desktop 1.000 MHz = 45 C
- mobile 800 MHz = 34 C
I didn't meassure with an powerconsumption tool now, but have here, possible tomorrow
I'm using /etc/rc.local and echo to the phc_controls interface,
I would not mind to use Terminal also to check if it works, when I get the commands to check functionally of PHC-Driver with Freq and VID easy.
The Temp I see with PSensor
check /sys/devises/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_driver
I check both:
- Desktop: phc-k8
- Mobile: powernow-k8 (you are right - so I have to try installation there again until I see answer from you)
both starting linux is generic-phc

I was reading more other Posts like that one: http://www.linux-phc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=67
PHC on Ubuntu 9.04
just I was locking as similar at Desktop with 12.04 and mobile with 11.10 for the .config at /usr/src/linux-source-<version>/.config

Desktop: if it is helping you anyway or in my case ...

Code: Select all

# CPU Frequency scaling

# x86 CPU frequency scaling drivers
looks not different at the mobile configuration.

= = = = = =
As I wrote you by PM: Possible start page for PHC using

If you want to change your freq and also your freq/vid you need to check:
- your processor (what data to look for, how ?)
- your linux kernel version (how to look for)
(Here possible a List of cussessfull installation, like - as table
- AMD Athlon 64, 3000+ - Ubuntu 12.04 - phc-k8-_v0.4.4 - PHCTool 0.5.2-2 - freq () - VID() - Link to Thread ...
- AMD Athlon 64 mobile 3200+ - Ubuntu 11.10 -- phc-k8-_v0.4.4 - PHCTool 0.5.2-2 ...)

What you need to install before as software to use, we suggest, need to make the changes:
- dep package name and how to test, if not how to install

What to be able to use during installation:
- sudo gedit (where to type in)
- sudo visudo -f <filename> (used at terminal, after change with cd into folder containing the file to change)
- sudo su #become SuperUser #exit to go back user
- uname -r #to see kernel version

What you need to Download to prepare:
- Download for your linux-version 'phc-k8_vxxx' or 'phc-intel_vxxx' from Link
- Download PHCTool ... Link
-> PHCTool Version 5.2.2-2 from Description and releases or PHCTool V 5.0.2-2 direct
-> PHCTool Version 5.2.2-2 patched for AMD Athlon 64 from with Discription or Direct

Step 1: recompile
... similar to http://www.linux-phc.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=67 or the one i used,
... http://linuxsolver.blogspot.com/2011/02 ... buntu.html ...
but with example:
Now we have to generate a debian package (AMD users with newer kernels might find troubles, in case leave a comment):

make dkms_mkdeb
including other options
Now we have to generate a debian package (AMD users with newer kernels might find troubles, in case leave a comment):

make dkms_mkdeb
(sudo) make dkms_install
[yours from upper post]

Step 2: Install PHCTool
first what need to check, like:
- is starting system ...<version>-gneric-phc ? - if not back to check problems and issues at Step 1!
after Install:
- use program 'Startup Applications' to set PHCTray into Tray automatic
- check in programm 'group and Users' for new group -phcusers' and that you are part of it
- check /etc/sudoers for '%phcusers ALL=(root) NOPASSWD:/<your path>/phctool/subphctool.sh' #should not ask password when start

Step 3: Using PHCTool and change freq and/or vid
first what need to check, like:
- is PHCTray starting ?
- is PHCTool starting ?
- are you getting VID freq inside PCHTool ?
if not, please back Step 2 check issures!

? Would that be worth to wrtie together ?
It doens't look like much people here anymore ...

Have tried to give any feedback to guys who write guides? :P BTW I am the author of linuxsolver...

Anyway I don't have a bunch of testers and actually I don't have an AMD powered PC either, so I'm not able to test everything I write. Back to your troubles, I have already removed the symlink part as they seem not to work on Ubuntu (doh):

http://linuxsolver.blogspot.it/2012/03/ ... -1110.html

The dmks_mkdeb is useful if you manage to build a .deb package... it makes you able to reinstall phc driver (on the same machine) without compiling anything, so it is quite useful, don't you think? I think that the point is: can we make it available for k8 version too?

Take a look again at my guide if you think I need to make changes. Anyway keep in mind that ub-users want to cut and paste terminal lines, and a guy to answer their questions.



If you have still troubles with phctool I'm the right guy ^_^

Crap. Well, I was trying to make my own topic, but I kept running into General SQL ERROR [1364] (Field 'topic_last_poster_name' doesn't have a default value)

Here's what I wanted to post:
Running into a few stumbling blocks using the [url-http://linuxsolver.blogspot.com/2011/02 ... buntu.html]external tutorial[/url].

I have the last updates for 11.04 (kernel 2.6.38-16-generic compared to PHC's 2.6.36-11), and already have gtk2-engines-pixbuf, python-gtk2-dev, dkms and debhelper.

The first trip-up is the Intel driver. Extracting it to /tmp, entering the directory, I execute this (which exits with a debian/rules error)

Code: Select all

make dkms_mkdeb
exits error.
I can install the driver with this

Code: Select all

make install
Then next issue is the GUI. After running install.sh and binding the files to /usr/bin, running phctool in a terminal, sudo or not, results in nothing.

Scratching my head what went wrong. Perhaps its Ubuntu 11.04, or the aged Pentium M 715 processor inside?

Thanks for noting, it should be fixed now. Just another leftover from the mysql4 to mysql5 transition. AFAIK all database tables and fields should be fixed now...

Thanks David. I'll make a new topic (or two) with this.
