Fan control and CPU temperature etc

Hash: SHA1


I've followed the recent discussion on fan control on ibook to see if a solution would come up to my problem. It didn't, unfortunately.

I have a powerbook 3.3, 550 mhz G4 tibook with Debian Sid and kernel 2.6.3-benh2 . I have no idea why, but it seems that, for no apparent reason, my cpu gets dramatically hotter, a lot faster when running Linux, compared to when I am running Mac OS X.

I tried installing various programs to dynamically alter the CPU frequency, but I couldn't get them to work (i tried among others cpudyn which claimed something was missing in the kernel, although I've tried compiling scaling_governor as module, as well as statically built in the kernel - for some reason the path /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor doesn't exist (and yes, /sys is mounted). Other programs claims kernelstuff is missing - which it indeed apperars it does.

So what can I do ? Should I downgrade to 2.4 ? What are other tibook owners doing ?

This is really bad. It annoys me so much that I've started using Mac OS X a lot more - which is bad:)

Thanks in advance.
