woops, sorry: 2.6.24-17-generic (twas a long night!). I used Intel's powertop application to find the power consumption. Did the file work for you?
2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 for all freqs. (computer never freezes).
i guess my notebook isnt giving a rat's *** about what undervoltage i give to it.
anyone experiencing this? know of a fix for it? i really long for the above 1hour battery life too
This is so awesome!! I fixed up a gutsy 2.6.22-14-generic kernel by following this other guide, and for finding the voltages I used the optimizer script. It gave me the shits, cause after every lock up I got an 'error 16 - inconsistent file system' and I had to run reiserfsck --check to fix it, but I got the results;
Default VIDs: 15 14 13 11 10 7
Current VIDs: 7 5 3 1 1 1
I actually changed it to 7 5 3 1 0 0 initially but then I realized I didn't really know what I was doing. But because the script adds 2 to the lowest VID tested I'm wondering if a VID of -1 is possible? and what about 0? The other guide says 'remember: you can not set lower VIDs than the lowest default VID'. is that true?
I haven't done a full battery unload yet btw, but the remaining time remains stable while remaining percentage goes down.. I guess it needs calibration..
edit; mm, just got a lockup doing nothing special so I now put in 12:7 11:6 10:5 9:4 8:3 6:1 which makes more sense anyway

Running the script goes all the way to zero, then tries -1 and the PC crashes. It gave me a message "Recovering CPU", and I waited for a couple of minutes, but it did not recover. Is there anything wrong ? Shouldn't it have stopped before 0 ?
Thanks in advance!
Hi,first of all thanks for this how to.In windows I have undervolted my T7300 to email@example.comGHz,and had that undervolt in my last 7.10 installation.
Now I am running a fresh install of kubuntu 64bit,and when I make the
it says file or folder inexistant (translation of portuguese).cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_controls
Undervolt again would be perfect
