xfce-power-manager

regarding swap - I made a swap partition on the usbstick and this is recogniced by porteus on booting - so that seems to be a problem of the sd-card drivers (must be in the kernel and not as module?) - or Porteus does not look for swap in sd-cards... I checked with Lubuntu with kernel 4.17, which u...

CPU_frequency_scaling

I think, that this are all the errors - for example, if you open mousepad form the terminal as root, the CPU goes crazy eg: when you open the xfce4 power manager in debug mode, it prints errors, the networkmanager prints errors, when you shut down XFCE, you can see errors.... First I have to organiz...

xfce-power-manager

it is xset - default xset dpms settings are: 300 0 600 - setting dpms to 300 0 0 works - but again, the dpms settings are overwritten on every boot add xset dpms 600 0 0 to /etc/rc.d/rc.local does not work, because x is not ready, when it performs the command sleep 100s before the xset command does ...

xfce-power-manager

I checked the xfce power manager with xfce4-powermanager --debug and everything seems ok

so I think something overrules the power manager, but what is it???? - acpid does not have any values - the same with pm-utils

?????

xfce-power-manager

ok - I think found first solution:

add swapon /mnt/mmcblk1p2/Porteus.swap to /etc/rc.d/rc.local should make swap persistent - not working

but swapon /dev/mmcblk1p2 does it

maybe change the faq http://www.porteus.org/faq.html#twenty

strange, that "cpufreq-set" is not available, as mentioned in the slackware docs so only with echo - but there is nothing to try out, because only performance and powersave are available root@porteus:/home/guest# cat /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_available_governors performance powers...

CPU_frequency_scaling

How can I change the governor.

I see, that the cpu scales with " watch grep \"cpu MHz\" /proc/cpuinfo".

But there is no "cpupower" command, no "cpufreq-set" command

Maybe somebody can help me.....
