Any other tool like PHC for changing CPU Clock/Voltage?
I am ready to switch to linux if I have one more software. I have everything sorted out with Linux; the distro and even have a list of linux alternatives for all but one software that I use with Windows: something that I can control the processor and MB freq and voltages.
I know there is cpufreq but that won't do. Because it will not let me change the frequency other than 950MHz/1.9GHz nor change the voltage.
I am using a compaq cq60-101au which has an AMD Athlon X2 (QL-60 1.9GHz codename:Puma) and a nVidia 8200 MB (Winstron).
The reason I want to change the freq and voltage is for battery life. I can easily double by lowering the voltage and freq to 0.075V and 617MHz in windows.
I can't seem to find something for linux. PHC works only with Intel CPU. I've been searching for a few weeks but can't seem to find anything compatible. I don't need any fancy graphics. Even a commandline application with args passed in hex will do. Anything absolutely anything you can tell me will do. Once I switch to linux I am not going back to windows, unless I find something like this I am not switching to linux. Besides, linux has a reputation of getting things done - any idea on how to get this done?
I am a newbie at linux and I haven't yet installed it on my main computer. But I am willing to spend time to get this working no matter how complicated but I don't know how.
