Hey tazoc, I am about to add wcpufreq 0.8 to Instant Update 002 for Lucid 5.2.8. Please let me know if you see any issues with that. I had already added it to Three-Headed Dog with no apparent problems. Thank you.

linuxcbon posted a bug report for wcpufreq, in Precise Puppy:

I fixed it, bumped the version to 0.8.1 (40K):

PostPosted: Sat 25 Jan 2014, 01:25    Post_subject: wcpufreq in wary 5.5 won't let me change minimum cpu freq  

DELL D600 max cpu freq 1.6GHz min 600Mhz which because of a broken wire on the board runs at minimum all the time unless you use acpi-cpufreq to set it to min 1.6GHz. In puppy 4.1.2 and 4.3.1 and 4.3.2 I can modprobe acpi-cpufreq and echo the correct minimum frequency to a file created by acpi-cpufreq (which is what the scripts do) and it changes the minimum to 1.6GHz and the computer runs at at full speed all the time. (No point in running it slowly since the same broken wire keeps it from charging the battery - Dell's way of forcing you to buy their OEM power supply with the matching wire). In wary 5.5 with wcpufreq the file does not change value - I cannot change either min or max frequencies using the wizard (it tells me I have a fixed frequency 600MHz) or with echo 1600 > /..... (on a different computer right now, don't have the file).

The BIOS is somehow involved. Maybe wcpufreq consults it and refuses to go above 600MHz?

What do I need to replace to get cpufreq working as in 4.3.1?
