AMD E-350, Linux and AMD PowerNow..
AMD E-350 is a lovely CPU, tiny, fast, lowpower - but - under Linux it doesnt change CPU frequency based on.. well anything, it just runs at full power all the time.
That aint economical all the time is it?..
to fix it we must install cpufrequtils, but the current build has some problems.
This guide takes step in Debian, any other OS is different (Maybe not any Debian based anyway)..
Open terminal and do the following commands
apt-get build-dep cpufrequtils
apt-get source cpufrequtils
go to line 120 and look for
after |17 add |20 so it looks like the following image:
Save and do cd .. twice
then apt-get source -b cpufrequtils
dpkg -i cpufrequtils_007-1_i386.deb
And voila!.. You can setup the CPU via cpufreq-aperf cpufreq-set and cpufreq-info
i advice you to do cpufreq-set -c 0 -g ondemand and cpufreq-set -c 1 -g ondemand
