    Default CPU-FREQ how to user select cpu speed?


    Hello,
    I'm running SuSE 11.1 here with the Gnome desktop.
    I noticed that the ability to change the CPU stepping is set to
    "ondemand" all of the time.
    I would like to be able to change this to "performance" once in a
    while.

    Is that feature just disabled from this version of the applet?

    Thanks,

    bertman

    Hello,
    Nope.
    Regular click on the cpu speed icon provides nothing.
    "right click" from the mouse give me preferences.

    Yes,
    that is how is should be, I know. Scaling works. However, the choice
    dialog does not pop up when clicked that allows it to be changed to
    "performance, dynamic, powersave, ondemand".

    That is my problem. When I mouse over the applet, it is set to
    "ondemand" all the time.
    It's as if the package was compiled without that available to the
    user.

    Create a second power profile indentical to one usually active with only
    a change in CPU policy and you can select it there? '[image:

    (http://www.imagebam.com/image/8fc1a224450341)
    (Or is this only available in KDE 4.*2*?

    I am blind , my apologies, must have mixed it up with another topic
    open in another tab.
    Can't advice about Gnome as I am not using it.

    Ok,
    I found another post, so tried the command shown here. It seems to
    work for root, but not for a regular user......still seems like a
    permission problem.
    linux-5w0k:/home/robert # cpufreq-selector -g performance
    linux-5w0k:/home/robert # cpufreq-selector -g powersave
    linux-5w0k:/home/robert # exit
    exit
    robert@linux-5w0k:~> cpufreq-selector -g ondemand
    You must be root
    robert@linux-5w0k:~>

    Hello,
    Just thought I would post that this has been resolved.
    thanks for the help.
    I found a link 'here' (http://tinyurl.com/b6nnst)

    I did perform a fresh installation, but it was from the live cd.
    perhaps that had something to do with it.

    The command that fixed it was:
    $ su
    $ chmod 4755 /usr/bin/cpufreq-selector
