how to add the Governor in the appropriate spot..they said"Add the following lines in appropriate spot amongst the other govenor's" Yes, they've given one code that i have to add, but how ?

here is the code:-

            bool "smartass"
            select CPU_FREQ_GOV_SMARTASS
            select CPU_FREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE
              Use the CPUFreq governor 'smartass' as default.
  • I assume this has something to do with building the Linux kernel? – Otheus Dec 31 '15 at 13:56

  • For the benefit of having your question answered, you should update the title of you question. Something like "configuring Linux kernel: how to add a governor". I have no idea what the answer is, but at least I understand the question. Otherwise, it looks like the entire question is a troll – Otheus Jan 2 '16 at 1:56

Try adding your code to the file drivers/cpufreq/Kconfig (using the other entries in that file as a guide to the formatting).

You will likely also have to do a few other things (e.g. edit drivers/cpufreq/Makefile and add a reference to your governor module source code - see section with comment # CPUfreq governors)

  • OK, Will try that – Smshrimant Jun 20 '18 at 11:34
