    Cpu Frequency Scaling


    How can i use cpu frequency scaling on openbsd for amd64? There doesn't seem to be any cpufrequency packages like there is for linux.

    Thanks

    It's baked in, though you'll need cpufreq enabled:
    Code:
    kldload cpufreq
    Then, you'll want to enable powerd in /etc/rc.conf:

    Code:
    powerd_enable="YES"
    Next, /etc/rc.d/powerd start. That should do it. You can put 'cpufreq_load="YES"' in /boot/loader.conf to load the cpufreq module on boot.
