2nd EDIT: I solved the problem, if you need to know how I did it, go to the last post
EDIT: I managed to solve the first part of my question, just need help with the second part (see below)
I hope this is the right section
I need some help with cpufreq: I installed it on my laptop (P IV, 2,6Ghz) to turn the heat and noise down.
Thing is, the values keep changing all the time.
I edited scaling_min_freq and set it to 333000 (333Mhz)
scaling_max_freq is 2666600 (2,6Ghz)
and then i set the governor to "ondemand"
These settings lasted about 15 seconds, then it automatically goes to "performance" and scaling_min_freq=scaling_max_freq=2666600, sometimes switching to min=max=2,0Ghz
Why does it keep changing all the time?
This is my cpufreq-info

analisi della CPU 0:
CPU per le quali e` necessario cambiare la frequenza contemporaneamente: 0
limiti hardware: 333 MHz - 2.67 GHz
frequenze disponibili: 333 MHz, 667 MHz, 1000 MHz, 1.33 GHz, 1.67 GHz, 2.00 GHz, 2.33 GHz, 2.67 GHz
gestori disponibili: ondemand, powersave, conservative, userspace, performance
gestore corrente: la frequenza deve mantenersi tra 2.67 GHz e 2.67 GHz.
Il gestore "performance" puo` decidere quale velocita` usare
in questo intervallo.
la frequenza attuale della CPU e` 2.67 GHz.
It's in italian but as you can see minimum frequence=max frequence=2,67Ghz
I want it to remain to "ondemand" and 333Mhz to 2,6Ghz!
And once I can with your help get it to remain set to these values, I'd like to know how I can make sure that it doesn't change AT BOOTUP
