Overclocking
« on: May 25, 2009, 09:41:41 PM »
The Dingoo guys provide a overclocking application which can push the CPU up to 430MHz - unfortunately, it's no a linux binary, but the source comes with it.

That way lies madness. Just accept the fact that you've got a cheap, relatively slow machine.

Madness is sometimes what that little machine can induce...  :D

Would it be worth investigating though? It could make a hellova differance. If i knew how, it would try it, but i don't. I can see where Utd_Grant is comming from though.

This has been my first experiance with linux, the LLL. Now i have installed it on the laptop that came with M$.!

It work also with the Cnm?

How it work?
I don't think that it will enable something by bios...what file i must run?
i have to use some commands?

Have you had any luck? 100MHZ might not seem like a lot, when when were talking a third of our processing power added, its quite significant.

Power consumption is proportional to the square of the clock speed, as is heat to dissipate.  But I understand that the processor is a 400Mhz run at 330Mhz to conserve battery time.  Are we missing a trick here.  The battery monitor automatically shows when the box is mains attached so a trigger to switch to 400Mhz when attached should be simple.

How do we do that then?

Step one: identify the code used to monitor the battery level
Step two: obtain the source
Step three: identify the mechanism used to under-clock ( several are published)
Step four: embed calls to speed up when mains is detected and slow down when on battery.
Step 5: recompile

Chuckle! Equally as off topic is this:

Step three was easier than I thought, now to find a way of flagging when plugged in to the mains.

I *think* /dev/MiniPC has something to do with it.
