Atom N280 frequency scaling not supported
Seems like there's a few people out there with a common problem. I can't get my Ubuntu 9.04 to manage the frequency of the Atom N280 CPU at 1,6 GHz on my Acer One D250 HD.
A quick google with bing later I found that I could "sudo modprobe acpi_cpufreq" except this returns "FATAL: Module acpi_cpufreq not found". A "sudo dpkg-reconfigure gnome-applets" didn't cut it either.
1333000 1066000 800000
Which shouldn't be, as /proc/cpuinfo, as well as Windows 7, states it's a 1,66GHz:
model name : Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N280 @ 1.66GHz
stepping : 2
cpu MHz : 1333.000
Though it seems the frequency is locked at 1,3GHz and that there's no power management involved.
Other peoples struggles with this:
