    Software for cooling cpu


    Hi,

    I know that there exists software for windows (e.g. cpuidle, VCool, S2kCtl ) to get your cpu in a special state ( apm, acpi ??? ) so it doesn´t work at full load and therefore cools down.

    I have an old PentiumII which I want to cool without a fan.

    So is there such a tool for linux ?
    Is acpi / apm seems useful for this. But how to use it ?



    thanks

    I think you mean a CPU frequency scaler. In that case, recompile the kernel with CPU frequency scaling support (and any sub options under that that you want).
