hi, really great guide, but i need some help please.
i want to recompile my kernel and remove all the cpu thermal control, and acpi and anything to do with that.
i run a prescott chip, and it is naturally very hot, i have the uguru Abit board, and i have full control of the temps and fans from there, it is totally normal for my chip to run at 70-75 under heavy load, and if it blows up, hehe, i dont really care, ive had this chip for soo long, so the issue is, i have these thermal warnings in my kern and sys logs and i dont even think my cpu supports thermal/frequency throttling and i dont want the kernel to control any aspect of this. it's causing me many shutdowns, when the kernel thinks its a dangerous temp, and i know it is not.
also, when it tries to throttle the cpu, i read the reason it crashes my system is because either my cpu doesn't support it, or the way in which it tries to send the workload to the other cpu for a second.. but its HT, not real core2 duo.. and the system jams.. or when trying to cut the power by half to the chip, it can't, and jams the system.. my motherboard has a seperate uGuru chip on it that controls all that stuff.. anywayz..
i downloaded the source from the repo, untared it, and i tried to use the program -make xconfig-, and i do find thermal stuff(did a search for thermal, found what i think it is i need to change), my question is, i untick those few thermal things, then save the config. then what.
how do i recompile my current kernel with that new config.
also.. when i open the linux source with make-xconfig, are all the settings i see my current settings, or am i looking at a fresh config and i need to set EVERYTHING properly in the kernel??
hope you know what i mean.
Thanks for any help.. i really need to get rid of these thermal modules in the kernel.
and i found all these thermal modules lookin at lsmod, modprobe -r them, but the thermal warnings are still there, and tried acpi=off(but then nvidia driver wouldn't load up, even after reinstalling the nvidia module), and during the nvidia reinstall, with the thermal modules unloaded, i still got the thermal warnings, so it is inside the kernel that i need to tweak..
sorry for the long winded post, just wanted to try and get all the details on what im tryin to do out., and what i've tried so far.
and i definitely do want to disable the thermal stuff in the kernel, i know what im doing in that respect.
edit-> just to show the warning im talkin about.. that eventually lock my machine...
CPU1: Temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 1820)
CPU0: Temperature above threshold, cpu clock throttled (total events = 1820)
and i'm pretty sure it's the thermal control module/s in the kernel that's crashing my machine, and not the high temp itself.. i mean.. there's no high temp condition that needs to be addressed if that's what you're thinking, that's just how my p4prescott runs, and how it alwayz ran.
