Installing phc-k8 from AUR

Post by phil5 » Sat 19. May 2018, 01:09

Hey all.

I am trying to undervolt my AMD E-350 processor with phc-k8. I have never installed an AUR package before, so please bare with me... I followed the arch wiki but it seems outdated.

I downloaded the files:

Code: Select all

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/phc-k8.git
Built and installed (no errors):

Code: Select all

makepkg -si
Added acpi-cpufreq to kernel modules with conf file in /etc/modules-load.d/. Rebooted.

Added values to /etc/default/phc-k8:

Code: Select all

VIDS="24 26 52"
This code doesn't do anything because /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_vids doesn't exist (why?):

Code: Select all

phc-k8 start
Also, wasn't I supposed to do:

Code: Select all

phc-k8 setup
at some point, or does makepkg do it for me?

I haven't found any other relevant documentation... Sorry if this is a stupid question. What am I missing?

Thanks

I didn't know, I'll look at it...
