The problem is on Mint 5 KDE. (Tried the main x64 edition but had to many problems with almost every thing, the touchscreen, the nvidia, the wireless, the fingerprint reader...and having just 3G ram I was told just to change to the 32 bit version)
When installed mint, the throttling was disable by default. So i followed this instruction from the wiki:
basicaly I added this to //etc/modules:
- Code: Select all
Some may say that I should put the policy to "performance" by default but that is a big problem for a pavilion tx1000. been in performance state the cores run normally around 60 °C and easily above 85° when I give it some work. (in windows xp its was easy to get it to 90°C, so I know it just shutdown at 95°C) So apart the heavy work for the fan and the risk of "cooking" the cores, it get really difficult to hold it with the bare hands....hello ..its a laptop that is sold as a tablet pc. I could cook an egg in the fan exit. By the way there is no process eating resources.
Im new on Linux...maybe it something silly, hope someone could help me. It took me so much time to make every thing work.
Peace! and sorry for my english
Saludos desde Chile!
PD: i'm new here and a very happy new user of Mint (4 weeks) Vista was just killing me. so happy, that I've make over 20 mint installation last week on my knows pcs. its so friendly compared to other Linux for people that have use windows for years. Well for desktops, the history on laptops is very different. Would love to see a mint x64 kde..this project promise...
