IIRC, cpudyn and pmud are different tools for different purposes. cpudyn
switches cpu speed as needed between "powersave" and "performance" using
cpu frequency scaling feature of new kernels. It also spins down disks
when not in use.

AFAICT, pmud does not do this, it does other things. Please, someone
correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm using it in my iBook (along with pmud and pbbuttons) and in an IBM
Thinkpad without any problem at all.  I also use it in 2 desktops
without cpu frequency scaling (just to keep a second disk in standby
because I almost don't use it).


Please do not reply to the sender address of this email; due to fu@#%&$ spam,
everything not comming from the list it's routed to /dev/null. Put menorqui in
the user part to send me anything.
Although, I prefer replies sent to the list so that others can benefit from the
discussion. Thanks.
