cpudyn or cpufreqd (i tried both) can set my cpu only on 600 or 1500 MHz, but nothing in between. Also I think the throttling is very sensitive. Means: I move my mouse quickly and it suddenly is 1500MHz.
How can I set this up a little different? I want it to scale also in between 600 and 1500 MHz.
My modules and Daemons:
cpudyn is disabled as I am trying cpufreqd at the moment.
Check out what frequencies your CPU supports by doing:
(also, it's a good idea to just poke around that directory to see how things are).
For example mine are:
1660000 1660000 1660000 1660000 1660000 1660000 1660000 1660000 1328000 996000
(I only have 3 steps, don't know if I could change that). Now, in cpufreqd.conf replace the percentage steps with actual clock speeds. Like this:
[Profile] name=On Demand High minfreq=1328000 maxfreq=1660000 policy=ondemand [/Profile] [Profile] name=On Demand Low minfreq=996000 maxfreq=1328000 policy=ondemand [/Profile]
This should work as intended. I don't know, however, how to help you with the sensitivity issue.
Ok, I have 1500000 1400000 1200000 1000000 800000 600000
But somehow cpufreqd doesnt want to work for me.
I just add "cpufreqd" to the daemons list, right?
you've used both... is there a major difference between cpudyn and cpufreqd?

Instead of using userpace solutions, you could install cpufrequtils and set the governor to ondemand (or other governor of your choice) by executing "cpufreq-set -g ondemand" (add that line to /etc/rc.local to make it permanent). Then you can observe how things work for you with "cpufreq-info".
conservative would be better IMHO if you want to experience more steps in your scaling. ondemand boosts you on max freq if the cpu power is needed, conservative on the other hand scales your cpu by steps supported until it reaches optimal cpu power
