View Full Version : [all variants] powernowd starts with the wrong settings at boot

June 4th, 2012, 11:20 PM
I have set up powernowd differently from the default so that the CPU is at the lowest clock speed when the load is low and at the highest whenever it does anything. After changing /etc/default/powernowd and restarting with "service powernowd restart" it works as expected, but after a reboot it uses the original settings and I need to do a "service powernowd restart" to make it use the settings in /etc/default.

How do I make it use the /etc/default settings at boot?

This is with Kubuntu 10.04.
