cpudyn controls the speed in Intel SpeedStep, Pentium 4 Mobile, AMD and any processor supported by the cpufreq Linux driver and any processor supported by the cpufreq Linux driver (check if /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor or /proc/cp
Tested with 2.4, Pentium 3 Speedstep Laptop (Dell Latitude), Pentium 4 Mobile Laptop (Dell Inspiron), AMD Power Now, Apple iBook, IBM Thinkpad. cpudyn is just a user space program, so it will work on every processor supported by the kernel's cpufreq driver.
I was tired of those complex programs that do everything but simply reduce the processor's speed when it's not needed and increase it to the maximun when it's really needed, as soon as possible.
So, I did it. It's not full of features (yes, I'll do it anyway) but it does very well what it should do.
By using cpudyn you should not not notice any performance impact, nevertheless you should save battery consumption and reduce the temperature of your laptop.
What's New in This Release:
· Sort frequencies table to avoid some BIOS's bugs (if used -minf)
· Check also for /proc/acpi/processor/CPU/ ACPI directory
