cpu scalling Core 2 Duo
I'm trying to figure out how to manually configure my scaling of a core 2 duo. I read that powernowd is for AMD but it was installed with Hardy (and appears to work) but it's preconfigured and I don't like the current settings. I can see the cpu slowing down (in conky) from 2400 mhz to 1000 mhz but it only has two setting, nothing in between. I read on the man powernowd that I can alter this but I tried this:
in the /etc/default/powernowd file with no luck. From my understanding that should make it so that it goes to 20% cpu use when cpu use is lowest and then it should gradually increase as needed. Instead I still only have the two options.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

the weird thing is when I uninstall powernowd and install cpufreqd there is no scaling and I can't get it to work at all (always running at 100%). I just reinstalled powernowd and added the scaling monitors to my taskbar and I can fully control my cpu frequencies....it's strange that cpufreqd doesn't work at all but something build for AMD would....
