As to the my HP dv5000 (AMD Turion 64), I configured cpufreq in my
Power management options ---->
CPU Frequency scaling --->
[*] CPU Frequency scaling
[ ] Enable CPUfreq debugging
<*> CPU frequency translation statistics
[ ] CPU frequency translation statistics details
Default CPUFreq governor (performance) --->
--- 'performance' governor
<*> 'powersave' governor
<*> 'userspace' governor for userspace frequency scaling
< > 'ondemand' cpufreq policy governor
<*> 'conservative' cpufreq governor
--- CPUFreq processor drivers
<*> AMD Opteron/Athlon64 PowerNow!
< > Intel Enhanced SpeedStep
<*> ACPI Processor P-States driver
--- shared options
[ ] /proc/acpi/processor/../performance interface (deprecated)
I chose "conservative" instead of "ondemand" because of the
description of the "conservative" governor in make menuconfig:
"If you have a desktop machine then you should really be considering
the 'ondemand' governor instead, however if you are using a laptop,
PDA or even an AMD64 based computer (due to the unacceptable
step-by-step latency issues between the minimum and maximum frequency
transitions in the CPU) you will probably want to use this governor."
Then I emerged cpudyn, but whenever i did
I got "powersafe".
Moreover, I think I ran into those "unacceptable latency issues": now
and then my mouse, the download of a web page, or whatever else
stopped a few seconds.
So I have removed cpudyn from my runlevel and added
I think that my notebook is working better now, but I'm note sure
about what I have done ;-) so ask you for your advice.
