Awesome. makes me wonder if something in /sys or /proc could convince it to charge the battery? I hope to get back to my script some time. By using min_freq instead of max_freq you could still have some scaling. I started writing it because many older processors only work with the performance module. ttyl
It now runs at 1.6GHz all the time. I have no reason to run it slower
since the laptop does not overheat, or charge the battery. The two
Windows programs that override the BIOS frequency setting do not fix the
charging problem so I doubt cpufreq can help there.
This is immensely easier than in Windows. The module is 7K.
I wonder if my K7 HP does ondemand - it tends to overheat and turn off.
