Hi my laptop runs hot and my fan never stops. I want to load the cpufreq(4)
driver to scale the frequency down when idle and up when needed. Unless I missed something from the man pages it kind of sounds like you can only change to one frequency at a time with just this driver. There is the powerd(8)
utilty that is supposed to scale automatically. The adaptive mode appears to be the default mode with this.
So can I just set both these modules to load at boot time and expect something productive to happen? or does anyone have experience with these that can help otherwise. I have a dual core AMD Turion 64 if it matters any.
EDIT: sorry i should mention i dont have my laptop with me right now so i can't test this out myself right now. im just looking for some quick advice on this. thanks.
