CPUFreq reduce CPU speed to minimum
April 16, 2010 04:46AM
Dear all,
thank you for the wonderful Elive 2 stable. I tried it on my laptop and everything seems to be working fine except one little detail that has a hard time to work in several development versions. This is the CPU frequency scaling module of Elive. My CPU is an Intel Centrino 2 Duo and can go from 800MHz 1600MHz 2100 MHz 2800MHz. However the emodule can only switch from 2.1GHz to 2.8GHz. Although I am trying to set it to 800MHz it is impossible. In Debian, everything is fine.

Any ideas how can I fix this?

Apart from that does anybody know how to instruct Elive, or E17 to scan the disk for new applications that were installed after the installation of Elive? One such is nvidia-settings which doesn't appear in the menu after I have installed it nor does it appear on the Add Application when I try to add new applications to the iBar.

Best wishes,

Hi guys

Same problem here.
I'm using a Centrino Duo from 800 - 2133. The system controls it from 1300 - 2133.

Did you get a solution?

I had this problem, too, so I was anxious to try chrdsto's solution.

But his solution is not quite complete - the file to edit is:


And it works for me on my eeePC 701.

Thanks, chrdsto!
