phc-intel on Ubuntu 10.04

Post by Astraller » Sat 5. May 2012, 17:46

Hello to all. First of all I want to adduce an excuse for my horrible English (Ukrainian is my native). Here is the problem. I have Ubuntu 10.04 with Core 2 Duo T6600 (2.2 GHz). When I use generic kernel with acpi-cpufreq the temperature on cores is about 46 degree centigrade even at powersafe mode. So I decided to make a test your phc-intel module.

For that I did several things:
1) downloaded from and compiled new 2.6.32-21 kernel and installed it.
2) then made & installed the phc-intel-0.3.2-10 instead acpi-cpufreq one.
3) And actually question: phc-intell works BUT with the same result as acpi-cpufreq. Temperature still the same and all my efforts to get any feedback fails. For example, I wrote in /etc/rc.local
echo "35 4 4" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/phc_vids
echo "35 4 4" > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu1/cpufreq/phc_vids
exit 0
Even if I trigger it to "1 1 1" --- same story. It seems that phc simply ignoring my settings.

So, gentlemen, where I am wrong? THX for your help!

I guess you messed up things since Ubuntu has its own kernel building flavour.

If you want to give it a try (maybe after a fresh re-install) take a at this detailed guide here: ... -1110.html
