Added the manual for VoodooPower: VoodooPower Manual
Update from 1.2.2 - Kernel frequencies updated
Update from 1.2.1 - Bugfixes and fixed bug when working with VoodooBattery
Update from 1.2.0 - Bugfixes for Pentium M, Some Pentium 4/D's, AMD K8, other overall bugfixes
If you only want the speedstep functionality, I have added a strip down version using the codebase from vp 1.2.4. It has all output and user control functions stripped, as well as AMD.
What does this thing do?
It will control some aspects of power management for your cpu. Most important is the speedstep functionality, to lower power footprint. It makes your cpu cooler or your battery lasting longer.
Where to get it?
Downloads, and support is to be done at http://www.superhai.com/ Source is available from http://code.google.com/p/voodoo-power/.
I have moved the source to Google Code, so if you have issues please make an issue report there. http://code.google.com/p/voodoo-power/
You can also post bug report at http://www.superhai.com/.
Please read this post before posting (explains how you can get the required debug information).
The future (1.3.x) (estimated late 2009)
- Deeper kernel integration
- Moving the hw controls to subclass kexts
- Rewrite to allow it run properly under OS X 10.6
- New bugs etc.
- Intel Pentium M/4/D
Intel Core (2) Quad/Duo/Solo
(Intel i7 and AMD K11 are still experimental)
- Apple "Vanilla" Kernel 10.5.x (Darwin Kernel 9.x)
("Snow" 10.6.x will soon be available)
(other spinoff kernels might or might not work, and are not supported)
This is the continuation of GenericCPUPowerManagement under a new name.
Just wanted to inform that I have started beta testing of some new kexts and if you want to try, read this.
For the moment I am beta testing VoodooBattery and VoodooPowerMini for Snow Leopard.
