CPU-frequency Scaling with Slackware


CPU-frequency-scaling is done by the kernel. A stock Slackware-installation comes with all requirements which are necessary to use this feature.


CPU-frequency-scaling must be configured in the kernel (this is the case for any stock-kernel in recent Slackware-versions) The package cpufrequtils must be installed, it provides the necessary tools in order to configure the scaling in userspace. If you've done a complete installation of Slackware the package is already installed.
