Re: Hints for cpufrequency on a D800 ?


The D800 is quite identical to the Inspiron 8600. Any guide which applies to 
the Inspiron should be applicate for your system too.

On the Debian stock kernel, it's a question of modprobing the relevant 
cpufreq-driver, (I can't remember what yours is called), and starting a 
userspace governor. `apt-get install cpufreqd' or `apt-get install 

Compiling your own kernel, you should (IMO) compile that relevant driver into 
the kernel (CONFIG_X86_SPEEDSTEP_CENTRINO = y in .config), and still run the 
governor from userspace.

I believe it's as simple as that.
