CPU scaling - ongoing joke of Ubuntu
Why is it such a big deal to get scaling working under Ubuntu? Why does something that works first time under winxp take so much effort for the Ubuntu dev team to get right?
I have always had to configure cpufrequtils by hand to stop the fan from working overtime unnecessarily. Why can't this simple task be done for the user. I was really hoping that this would have been solved by the release of Hardy about 4 years after i first used Ubuntu. I'm obviously expecting too much!
Even setting cpufrequtils now doesn't bring the cpu down to the speed where the fan doesn't need to run so high. The snap-in panel tells me its running at a constand 798mhz, compared to 275mhz in winxp. so now it doesn't even work up to the point that it worked in 7.10 do the devs hate me?
Trial and error are your best teachers.
