I started this thread, so we can discuss and give feedback on Meklort's branch of Chameleon RC5.
I am using his branch because the netbook I have uses Atom CPU, hence it is important for the booter to support it so a vanilla kernel can be used.
You can get the latest revision by using svn and compile it on your machine
svn co http://forge.voodooprojects.org/svn/chameleon/branches/meklort
Please help by keeping the thread in topic! Thanks!
here is the detail about rev 669 doesn't generate P-States.
according to slice, there was a change in ACPI patcher in the trunk, and it was for Nehalem CPU's min divider.
i wonder if it is possible to have a backward compatibility with Atom, what do you think?
