Re: Ubuntu without powernow_k8?
Maybe this is too late for you Troublegum, but I just came across this thread
To find whether a module is loaded in the current kernel, use this command 'lsmod'. So for checking powernow-k8, you can do
$lsmod | grep powernow
Unfortunately, ubuntu has started compiling the powernow-k8 module into the kernel binary from Jaunty, so it is not loaded separately as a module. hence you cannot do 'modprobe powernow-k8' to actually load a module.
Yes, this means undervolting/overclocking stuff done by ppl using powernow or phc-k8 will not be very easy. You'll have to recompile the whole kernel which is a PITA.
