After some pretty extensive code reorganization and simplification, plus further multi-core debugging, I am releasing 2.2.0 as stable to get more testers... ;)

I am currently unable to ftp to BerliOS (can't get gftp or filezilla working through squid), or ssh to the VL repo (lost my private ssh key for it), so I will post the package here. Please help me get it to the repo... ;D

Due to file type attachment limitations, I had to add ".zip" to the end of the package name, please just remove that... ::)

Recently found a bug in vcpufreq-loader introduced after removing a configuration variable during the code refactoring. This caused it to look at the wrong setting in the ini file, so startup loading of the vcpufreq settings was not working. Here is a VL6 package of the fixed version 2.2.1. Sorry about the inconvenience, but that's what happens when nobody reports bugs... ;)


EDIT: BTW, I added a few extensions to the list of allowed attachment types, so it would take VL packages, etc.

EDIT 2: I meant allowed attachment types on the Forum, of course...

Seems to be working great here, thank you for all your work.

I think I know which bug you're talking about. At the time I assumed I was doing something wrong, that's why I didn't say anything. ;)

You're welcome!

And I know what you mean about not noticing the bug, it took me quite a while to realize it wasn't loading the settings on start up here on my own laptop, LOL.

My new desktop E8500 CPU supports scaling. Tested above package on VL6 KDE-Classic with kernel 2.6.31.8.
Set to "ondemand" and CPU throttling did kick in. Checked "Save on exit" and "Load on boot" boxes and rebooted.
Settings returned to "userspace" and CPU running at full speed.
Ran /sbin/vcpufreq-loader.gambas, rebooted, same thing.
Added /sbin/vcpufreq-loader.gambas to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, now it loads on boot.  ;D

The package refers to "CLI vcpufreq-load", but the actual executable is vcpufreq-loader.gambas. This may be a little confusing.

VL used to have that line there by default, but I notice it is not there anymore on VL6 SOHO.

You are correct, that was the original name, time to fix the description, thanks.

Finally got around to fiddling with this today, and I did find that line in rc.d. It was commented out, but it was there.

A little help placing the package in testing would be welcome... ;)

Like a dummy, when I installed RC2.8, guess what got whacked with the old installation? I know I backed the SSH keys up someplace, gotta find 'em. **banging head on desk**

I don't have access to move package, but can report successful testing on three different computers. My Core2 Duo desktop, another desktop with an AMD K8 dual core, and my Celeron-M laptop.

**sigh** I've had to redo the keys and send them off to John to get updated on the server. I didn't save them. Didn't even think of doing it when I copied the selected folders from /home when I installed the new RC.

Yes, I have to generate new keys and send them to John as well, except I needed to that months ago... :-[   Work and life have been way hectic lately and having port 22 blocked on the proxy at work doesn't help much either.

I had some quality vcpufreq coding time between watching games from the FIFA World Cup (got me some vacation time after the groups stage), so here comes vcpufreq-2.4.0, with the following changelog:

Code: [Select]
2010-06-30   <joe1962@users.berlios.de>

* Always save settings on exit
* Removed "Save on exit" setting and related cleanup
* Extensive GUI restructuring for compactness
* Light green background for info-only textboxes
* Replaced per-CPU freq. textboxes by a dynamically-generated grid

I fixed the gambas/gambas2 dependency issue on the package, which had snuck back in for 2.2.1 after I fixed it at one point, sorry about that. I also thought that gambas2-2.16 was in the repo, but it seems to be still at 2.15? So I used that as dep instead. Time to get some 2.20.2 packages done, I am using that gambas2 version from some slacky.eu packages I installed.

Anyway, I am attaching the package here as I have been doing lately...
