Here's why some users were reporting problems with the CPU Frequency Scaling Tool. Quirky 1.1 has modprobe v3.3-pre11 but Quirky 1.2 has 3.11.1. This new version always produces a warning message "Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf...."

When the CPU Frequency Scaling Tool program tries to activate any power module, it interprets this warning message as a failure, even if you have made the correct selection.

But manually loading the correct module from /root/Startup/start_cpu_freq works properly in spite of the warning.

[Edit] The solution to the problem appears to be:

1. Make a folder /etc/modprobe.d
2. Move the file /etc/modprobe.conf into this new folder.
Code:
mkdir /etc/modprobe.d
mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.d

Oh c**p, I found a buglet, an annoying one. It was a seamingly harmless change that I made to a script just before uploading. Easy to fix: Open /usr/bin/gtkdialog-splash in a text editor -- look at line 244, there is a "-" missing, it should be "yaf-splash". This bug prevents some popup progress indicators to display.

Note, I'll probably re-upload Quirky 1.2 tomorrow (but it will be done in such a way not to break any downloads in progress).

EDIT:
I decided had better fix it right away. so did. Have uploaded fixed ISOs.

Yep, That's the fix.

Thanks rcrsn51 !

PostPosted: Sat 05 Jun 2010, 11:14    Post subject: quirky 1.20 jerky video  

Just downloaded quirky 1.20 and installed.
Applied the trick for freq scaling (thanks rcrsn51)
The script in Startup can be set now by the tool.

So to keep the temp lower, I did put min at 0,6GHz and max at 1,0GHz
I see the cpu runs at 1,0GHz and temp is good, but the youtube video Fireflies runs very jerky.

What processor does your machine have? I have the same problem on an Athlon machine.

Run
Code:
report-video

What video driver are you using? My Athlon is the only machine that traytemp does not work on, but apparently it's not the processor.

Downloaded the 1.2 versions just before the revisions went up, so d/l-ed both again: these are the definitive versions.
And would you Adam-and-Eve - it after so much grief with the feature, the shutdown on 1.2retro isn't working again on SiS chipsets! Somebody somewhere knows about all this...

See if this vid. runs any smoother.
Works pretty good on my 800mhz p3.

Well, that's really a jerky comment. Don't know how to take that. Evil or Very Mad
Anyway, I have the same jerky effect.
So please give me a solution, wonder boy(girl?).

Hi rcrsn51:

When you reboot it’s back. Because it makes a new modprobe.conf back in /etc.

Code:
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.


PS: I am not using this modprobe.conf, so I just remove it with a remove line in rc.sysinit, which I know is not the correct way to do it.

Just meant the "Gaga" vids have extreme "flash card" (jerky)
effects. The Fireflies vid only slightly on my p3.

Only solution I ever found was to download the youtube vids.
as mp4.
