I've been using cpufreqd successfully with the DSL-N distro (2.6.12) and would now like to use cpufreqd with the DSL distro (2.4.26) on the same laptop.
In order to get the cpufreq drivers working with 2.4.26, a patch is required to modify the kernel and add the modules - I've done this and compiled the speedstep-centrino and p4clockmod drivers (I use speedstep-centrino with 2.6.12).
I have installed the cpufreqd debian package without problems under the patched 2.4.26 and it seems to run OK - the "run in foreground" option shows that the rules are being evaluated based on acpi events, etc.
My problem is that cpufreq does not supply any governors (eg powersave, conservative, etc) in the 2.4.26 patch and only has the following kernel options:
Given this, is it possible to modify the rules so that cpufreqd changes the speedstep settings directly by using the userspace interface (equivalent to echo x > /proc/acpi/processor/CPU0/performance?)? If so, how would this work?
