Description:

IMPORTANT NOTICE
----------------
Starting from version 0.4, cpufreqd control module is integrated into mainline CPU Info applet (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=33257). All further developments (including bugfixes) will be done in that tree. This particular version should be considered as discontinued. I appologize for any inconvenience.

This Kicker applet is based on CPU Info 0.3 (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=33257) but adds the ability to control current CPU frequency via cpufreqd remote interface. If you have cpufreqd configured and running on you machine, CPU Info will provide a submenu named "Performance Profiles" where you can choose one of the preconfigured profiles for cpufreqd. Choosing one of the profiles will automatically put cpufreqd in manual mode. You can use "Select dynamically" option from the menu to return back to the dynamic scaling.

Known limitations:
1. cpufreqd should be started before CPU Info applet (it's not a problem when you do everything from your startup scripts)
2.Since cpufreqd does not provide means to detect its current mode (manual/dynamic), in rare cases "Select dynamically" check can be inconsistent with the real daemon state. This is inconvenient but does not affect program functionality.

Installation:
=============
make -f Makefile.cvs
configure --prefix=`kde-config --prefix`
make
make install #as root

Please don't forget to enable cpufreqd remote controlling in cpufreqd.conf (enable_remote=1) and give enough permissions to cpufreqd socket ("remote_group" option in cpufreqd.conf, see man pages for details)

Скажите, пожалуйста, Ваша утилита поддерживает регулирование частоты современных процессоров в KDE 4.7.x?

Спасибо

hello,

thanks for that grat applet, i like the control of the cpufreqd ;)

but i have 2 questions:

first:
is it possible to split the updateinterval into separate ones for frequency and temperature?

(because temperature is not updatet here with an interval smaller than 2 sec)

second:
is it possibe to reserve a constand amount of space in the kicker?
(because when switching between 1,6 and 1,333 GHz the other icons are moving from left to right all the time)


thank you very much

hello,

Thanks for your comment.

>is it possible to split the updateinterval into separate ones for frequency and temperature?

No, a single timer controls all the readout, but it can be implemented.

(because temperature is not updatet here with an interval smaller than 2 sec)

Umm... Not yet, and it is somewhat harder to implement. The only way I see at a glance is to reserve a space for the applet according to longest line possible (hardly someone will have 10 000 MHz machine in near future).

Actually, this "general" (i.e. not CPU-specific questions) should be addressed to original cpuinfo developer. I'm only responsible for cpufreqd module. As for now, there are three different versions of cpuinfo and I think it's bad. So I'm going to contact original cpuinfo developer and ask him to integrate all these changes into his project. When this will be decided, we'll be able to move further and implement other things, including those you ask for :)

Of course I meant CPUFreqd-specific :)
