I have a Dell M170 laptop with Fedora 8 installed. I am having problems with speedstep / CPU Frequency Scheduler. Basically I am unable to get the laptop out of the lowest speed (800MHz), Other speeds are shown, but selecting them doesn't make any difference. I also have 2 governors installed: on-demand, and performance.
I can see messages in the system log to tell me that the speed change is requested, but I can't see anything happening.
I have also tried issuing:
cpufreq-selector -c 0 -f 2267000
again, with no problems.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
