    Changing Procoessor ID


    If you run:

    dmidecode -t 4 | grep ID
    ID: XX XX XX XX XX XX XX XX


    Which is your processorid. Is there any way to change that temporarily, that anyone knows of?

    Thanks in advance!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Not that I'm aware of. The purpose of this program/function is to get the CPU ID. A lot of proprietary software that is linked to a specific CPU relies on this, and trying to spoof that is not likely to result in "good" results.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
