Cpuspeedy is a simple tool written in Python which allows you to change the clock speed and voltage of the CPUs using the Linux's CPUFreq driver. A graphical frontend written in C using GTK+-2 libs is also available.
All you need is a supported CPU and a kernel which has the CPUFreq driver compiled in.
Cpuspeedy is a user space program, so it will work on every processor supported by the kernel's CPUFreq driver.
Use it and you should save battery consumption and reduce the temperature of your laptop.
Cpuspeedy will work with the Linux kernel version 2.6.x/2.5x using the sysfs interface and with 2.4.x kernels using the CPUFreq proc interface.
* One simple, easy to use program to set the CPU speed. No daemons, no fency algorithms to determine the speed to use.
* Four different modes of operation: minimum, low, medium, high, maximum which you can set.
* Best of all, it saves battery consumption and reduces the temperature of your laptop.
What's New in This Release:?пїЅ pythermalzone.py is now checking for every dir in the /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ directory. If the temperature file is found, then its value is read. This should fix a bug that prevented cpuspeedy to get the cpu's temperature in those systems where the path to the temperature file is not /proc/acpi/
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
