Because of a noisy fan in my laptop, I need to change CPU frequency and for this task I need to load the appropriate kernel module.
The CPU in my laptop Acer TravelMate 4002WLMi is:
$ cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep "model name" model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.60GHz
This article helped me to find the kernel module I need (my CPU differs only a little in frequency).
sudo modprobe speedstep_centrino command nothing happened.
echo $? returns
Could you explain what's wrong with kernel modules and how to use the appropriate module for changing CPU frequency?
