I'm changing my CPU frequency because of noisy fan.
sudo cpufreq-selector -g powersave for this purpose, but I replaced my Linux system
Lubuntu because it utilizes better resources. My version is
11.10 and I'm not using
There is something wrong with
Failed to acquire org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector: Connection ":1.35" is not allowed to own the service "org.gnome.CPUFreqSelector" due to security policies in the configuration file
$ cpufreq-info Report errors and bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org, please.
analyzing CPU 0:
CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
maximum transition latency: 10.0 us.
hardware limits: 600 MHz - 1.60 GHz
available frequency steps: 1.60 GHz, 1.40 GHz, 1.20 GHz, 800 MHz, 600 MHz
available cpufreq governors: conservative, ondemand, userspace, powersave,
performance current policy: frequency should be within 1.60 GHz and 1.60 GHz.
The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use
within this range.
current CPU frequency is 1.60 GHz.
cpufreq stats: 1.60 GHz:98.40%, 1.40 GHz:0.02%, 1.20 GHz:1.58%, 800
MHz:0.01%, 600 MHz:0.00% (38)
I also tried this guide because my processor is the same (only the frequency is 1.6 instead of 1.73). I'm not sure if something happened after
sudo modprobe speedstep_centrino command
Could you help me to figure out what's wrong here and why I can't slow the frequency down?
