I already answered this in one of your other posts. Husse is busy helping people, and can't be expected to answer every question on the forums. It also isn't polite to write in all CAPS. If you knew the answer already why are you asking, and singling out Husse? I'm sure this will get locked down soon anyway.

I'll answer your question, but you won't like it.

You failed to give enough information to answer the question you were really asking. The answer to the exact question you asked is, "no," CPU throttling is not disabled in Mint 5. The answer to the question you were trying to ask, "will CPU throttling work on my machine?" can't be answered with the info you gave.

CPU throttling works in conjunction with the BIOS and on-board firmware. Since most system sensor setups are proprietary and without a standard that all follow, sometimes these on-board functions will work with Linux and and sometimes they won't.

By-the-way, who do you think you are? We, including Husse, are all volunteers giving our time freely to help others when and if we choose to do so. Husse doesn't owe you or anybody else anything. As much as he does for the community and as many people as he helps, he should be the last person you would complain about.

Well, I guess if I had esp and could read your mind from afar and knew exactly what equipment you had I could take the next few weeks out of my life and run right out, research and write a program just for you, so your fans would work like you want. But I think not! You want a program to do that, with all due respect, go write it yourself.

For your information, all caps is considered hollering and rude. As you can see by my post, you aren't likely to get the results you wanted when being rude to people that you are asking for help.

Re: FREDS RESPONSE

Postby tuxcommando on Mon Sep 08, 2008 4:21 pm

Fred,

I thank you for responding, but next time dont PUT WORDS IN MY MOUTH, AND DONT MAKE UP STUFF....
you said { The answer to the question you were trying to ask, "will CPU throttling work on my machine?" } NO..IT WASNT...

I know full well that cpu throttling will work on my machine, it has for years in windows, so that leaves it to the EXACT question I asked, not what you imagined.
The reason I responded to husse the way I did , WAS BECAUSE YOU WERE WRONG AGIAN, Husse answered a ton of questions that were on the same day and time as my
post, its CLEAR he intentionally skipped over it, and refused to answer it.... that... I took as just being arroragant.... he could have simply said ... YES, NO , MABY.... and that would have
been fine.... instead he chose to ignore me, that is what upset me. So be it... when you act like that , YOU HAVE TO EXPECT TO TAKE THE HEAT OF THE RESPONSE...
I dont know Mr. Husse personally , but since this was the first time I had spoken to him, and I did ask my question of him POLITELY ....and he choose to SNUB me... then he gets
an appropriate response.... NEXT TIME... maby he will have some better manners....

Now , back to the Question at hand, Since the guy who should know failed to respond to the question, I was left to figure it out on my own, I found CPU THROTTLING in the SERVICES panel....
AND THE ONLY THING one needs to know as to wether a machine supports cpu throttling is WHAT PROCESSOR THEY HAVE ...... IF THE CODING IN THE PROCESSOR SUPPORTS IT.. . THEN
THE COMPUTER DOES.... THAT IS A COMPLETLY DIFFERENT SUBJECT ON WETHER IT WILL WORK IN linux or MINT.... EH...

Nice to meet you Fred, Ive read your posts..and your a pretty knowledgeable guy... thanks for your help... TC
