I'm running linux mint and trying to get a virtual machine to work, but my CPU keeps throttling.
I'm tried to run sudo /sbin/vboxconfig but around the "build packages" part it seems like my computer is throttling. I checked the temp with s-tui and sensors -f and it seems like this happens around 75C.
I'm using a lenovo t470 which should be able to run up to 100C, so I don't think the temperature is the problem. I went and tried to stop and even uninstall thermald and install this github fix, https://github.com/erpalma/lenovo-throttling-fix, which should raise the throttling limit, but dmesg still says the core and package temperatures are above threshold and stops the configuration.
I think I can still install a VB by simply disabling the secure boot, but I feel like there's still an underlying problem of throttling too soon. Any ideas?
