• \[SOLVED\] cpu throttling


    I noticed no freq scaling on my “Intel® Celeron® CPU 900”. It just keeps on running on 2.20GHz. Not really a problem, it is not yet getting to hot but this is not needed.
    I installed cpupower to determine the settings but all I get is that there is no or an unknown freq. scaling installed.

    Do I need to do something to the kernel??? I hope not.

    Hi,

    I created a script with chmod 755, to manage my freq.

    cat Scripts/cpu.sh   
    > \#! /bin/sh  
    >   
    > cpupower frequency-set -g "$1"  
    > 
    

    I am on the “old” Cinnarch Gnome Edition, with G3.8

    Don't forget to mark as [SOLVED], if your problem was solved!

    just tested it from the terminal:

    Not sure if ondemand is a valid governor.

  • Try:
    restart your laptop, and do a sudo pacman -Syyu

    Did you acticate the service?

    systemctl enable cpupower.service

    Done all that, speedstep-lib was accepted etc. but still cpupower gives me a no go

  • I can’t help much with this, but did you check the arch wiki article about it? [https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CPU_Frequency_Scaling][0]">[https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CP][1] … cy_Scaling

  • Oh damn xD I missed that line -.-

  • So, these are the steps I took, could be I’m doing something completely wrong…

    1. Completely reinstalled Antergos
    2. Pacman -Syy && Pacman -Syu
    3. Installed cpupower
    4. Followed the guide
    4.1 Pacman -S cpupower
    4.2 systemctl enable cpupower.service
    4.3 ls /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/cpufreq/
    4.4 modprobe speedstep-lib
    4.5 echo speedstep-lib >/etc/modules-load.d/speedstep-lib.conf
    5. Just to be safe: echo cpufreq_ondemand > /etc/modules-load.d/cpufreq_ondemand

    Still no luck!

    Thank you for pointing that out to me but no luck:

    Error still: no or unknown cpufreq driver is active on this CPU

  • I will begin testing on other distroś and post my findings here.

  • Mission aborted. One brainwave (the first one of my life) brought me to the Intel site and there it stood…:

    Enhanced Intel SpeedStep® Technology [b:3vyu32sr]No[/b:3vyu32sr]

    So al your hardwork for nothing, it just isn’t there. I am sorry for wasting all your time
