Need alpha testers for my Core ix source code

Hello

I'm programming a simple tool to show my Intel Core i7-920 DTS temps, frequencies, ratio, but also various values SMBIOS such as BCLK and DMIs (motherboard, caches) , btw CPU features and DDR3 timings.

I was wondering how my program goes with recent procs ?

Lastest source code & guide of CoreMod are available in my wiki.cyring.fr

Thanks for helping ;-)

Meanwhile XFreq has new features, such as monitoring the kernel task scheduler facing the Cores usage.

Re: Need alpha testers for my Core ix source code

Hello,
Did you have a chance to make it run with your i920 ?
FYI, an AUR package is now available.
Regards.

Re: Need alpha testers for my Core ix source code

If it does not work as expected, may you please provide me some screenshots,  especially those from the System Information Widget, full page.

Thank you in advance, (& sorry for the English misunderstanding)

Re: Need alpha testers for my Core ix source code

Thanks for the screenshot.

Because it uses low level instructions of the processor, such as the MSR registers, xfreq has to be run with the root user.
That's why a message is output "Warning: root permission is denied"

You may also verify that the kernel module msr is loaded before, and optionally the BIOS gate, named dmi-sysfs.

Depending of your Desktop Environment. the X-Window ACL may also be closed to root. If true, xhost +, or xfreq itself can handle it when run once with the option '-x'.

I suggest the following commands:

$ xfreq -x N
$ su
# modprobe msr
# modprobe dmi-sysfs
# xfreq

Regards
