VMWare Workstation with phc kernel on Ubuntu

If you ever struggle with the VMWare Workstation installation while running the Ubuntu PHC kernel PPA's kernels: Edit /lib/modules/2.6.32-23-generic-phc/build/include/linux/utsrelease.h and replace the obviously wrong version number with e.g. "2.6.32-23-generic-phc" (Of course, replace the version n...

Re: Two highest speeds on Core 2 Duo

I don't think so, if IDA kicks AFAIK the other core is temporary disabled and consumes much less power. on my C2D P8600, I run with these values since several months now: R=V 1: V=26 24 18 17 T=0 0: V=26 24 18 17 T=0 So the IDA mode only has a little bit more power set than the HFM. I consider SLFM ...

Re: Two highest speeds on Core 2 Duo

Thanks for the clarification. That explains why this IDA state needs a higher voltage despite the wrongly displayed difference of only 10MHz.

Two highest speeds on Core 2 Duo

I noticed on many Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs that there are always two highest speeds, one is the highest speed "written on the box" (e.g. 2.40GHz), the other is a little bit higher (e.g. 2.41GHz) which usually has a much higher voltage.

What's the purpose of this?

Thanks

Thinkpad X61s (Core 2 Duo L7500)

Hi! This is really a great tool! As a first test subject, I tried it on my work laptop, a Thinkpad X61s with a Core 2 Duo L7500. I run Ubuntu 9.10 amd64. I installed the generic-phc kernels from the ppa at https://launchpad.net/~linux-phc, linux-phc intel 0.3.2-2 and PHCTool 0.5.1. The standard VIDs...
