    Using Intel P-state without Grub

    I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 on a 13" MBP retina, and I followed these instructions for installation: http://randomtutor.blogspot.com/2014...ok-pro_19.html.

    When I installed, I ran `ubiquity -b` to install without Grub. I'd like to use the Intel P-state driver alongside thermald to control CPU temps. Currently, just during normal browsing with Chrome, I'm easily hitting 58-65 Celsius. Everything I've found so far includes editing /etc/default/grub, but that won't work.

    Any suggestions?

    Yes!

    Assuming you're using rEFInd to boot, run sudo ./mkrlconf.sh within the rEFInd folder. This will create the file /boot/refind_linux.conf where you can change the boot options - let me know if you need any more help

    (I'm assuming you know how to run commands, download and unzip refind, and edit files as root)
