I am running gnome desktop so I dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets, set up

app. This should allow me to set the CPU freq to full, then fire up
vmworkstation and my vms will not get confused as to the CPU speed.
I run vmworkstation. I do not want my desktop to use ondemand.
userspace conservative ondemand powersave performance
when I edit /etc/init.d./cpufrequtils
# Set ENABLE to "true" to let the script run at boot time.
# eg: ENABLE="true"
and have it say GOVERNOR="performance"
it will not come up from a boot that way. I will still have cpu
frequency scaling running. I have to run /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils
from the cli, and yet it IS in the rc.d scripts.
Anybody knows what is going on here?
Perhaps a better option for me would be to use userspace and manually
set the freq (full when running vms, slower when not needed) and that
way I will not always be sucking down the juice. What would a good
userspace tool be? dual core amd cpus.
