Thread: How to set a MAX CPU frequency? Linux overclocks my CPU!!!

  1. #1

    Default How to set a MAX CPU frequency? Linux overclocks my CPU!!!

    My CPU has 2.19GHz (2190.000kHz)

    but linux runs to fast
    if i watch the time
    1 minute (real time) = 5 minutes (linux)


    i checked the cpu freq with
    Code:
    cat /proc/cpuinfo |grep MHz
    and the output was
    cpufreq 2194.800 kHz
    the cpu is overclocked!!!!

    how to set a max freq for the cpu in linux?? is this possible???
    i want a linux in normal-speed not ultra fast!
    a video with 5 minutes length is over in 20 seconds

    pls help!!

    CPU: AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Technology TL-64 (1 CPU with 2 Cores)
    Host OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3
    Guest OS: Linux openSUSE 11.4 with VMware Tools installed!

    At best you have a typo... a 2194.8 kHz system wouldn't run most versions
    of Linux at all since that's be a 2 MHz system (I had one of those, but
    not since the 1980's).

    So you mean MHz (especially since that's what you grep'd for) and that's
    fine, so now you're concerned about four extra MHz? If you run that grep
    command over and over it is possible you will see that number move up and
    down regularly. This is all normal. Going over what the
    marketing-created sticker for your CPU reads (2.67, which is
    unsurprisingly the same as 2.674 when you round it) is a good starting
    place, but being off by less than a percentage is nothing to worry about.

    Good luck.
