Hi all,

My CPU Frequency Scaling Monitor says that CPU Frequency Scaling is unsupported on this CPU. I have seen that others with Celeron M 530's and 540's can get frequncy scaling to work but i have had no such luck.

I have tried these threads and nada.

CPU Specs: Celeron M 540 1.86 GHz

I have done :

luddite@ACER:~$ sudo modprobe p4_clockmod
[sudo] password for luddite:
FATAL: Error inserting p4_clockmod (/lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/kernel/arch/x86/kernel/cpu/cpufreq/p4-clockmod.ko): No such device

I know others running 8.10 and celeron M's can get the scaling working.

I have tried uninstalling powernod cpudyn and installing the other ones.

Currently i have this installed:

cpufrequtils
cpufreqd
kpowersave
powertop
lipowersave10
licpufreq0
laptop-mode-tools
powermgmnt-base
acpid

Thanks.

Hi I have the exact same problem with my Acer Aspire 5315 running 8.10. I have tried: powernowd, powersaved, emifreq-applet, but none of them will work since I can't load the module.

Did you find a solution or figure out why we don't have /cpufreq in our cpu directory?

Nope still looking into this every so often.
