Description Nuno Teixeira freebsd_committer 2021-04-22 09:54:43 UTC
Hello rigoletto!

I've tried to run powerdxx on 14 current but it doesn't work.
Could you take a look at https://github.com/lonkamikaze/powerdxx/issues/15 ?

Maybe it is a good solution to have a pkg-message telling how to run it.
I don't know about 13 Release, but I used to run it ok on 12 Release.

What you think?
Comment 1 Nuno Teixeira freebsd_committer 2021-04-22 10:29:03 UTC
Strange, author closed issue in a strange way to me and I can't understand it.

I'm thinking what I did wrong.

Need help!

He asked "Would it be better to print a multi-line description explaining this?" and you pointed to this bug report. :-D

I will have a look this week, probably tomorrow.

Thanks for reporting.

    sysutils/powerdxx: add pkg-message to inform

    - for CPUs that are supported by the hwpstate driver powerd++ is
      obsolete and in fact not possible, because the driver discards
      frequencies set via the sysctl interface.

    - there is a loader tunable that lets you turn it off.
