Speed Throttle in Ubuntu


OSNN Veteran Addict

Running Ubuntu 8.04 on the laptop and the speed throttle application says the laptop does not support throttling.

This is somewhat correct because speed step is not available in the Celeron M family (mine is a 520 Merom) but there is another method. XP and VISTA speed throttle is available on this laptop (using winthrottle in XP, Toshiba drivers for VISTA).

So, is there an add-on for Ubuntu/Linux that will do the same as the windows and allow dropping processor speed on the fly? I've googled but found nothing.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
