VoodooPowerMini not working on ASUS P5B + E8500 ?
« on: April 05, 2010, 01:48:52 PM »
Hi Superhai,

  I've installed VoodooPowerMini 1.2.5 (from http://www.superhai.com/files/current/release/VoodooPowerMini.kext.zip) in /S/L/E. After reboot it looks like it is loaded:
Code: [Select]
$ kextstat | grep VoodooPower
   86    0 0xffffff7f8119b000 0x3000     0x3000     com.superhai.driver.VoodooPowerMini (1.2.5) <7 5 4 3>

  But I don't see any speedstepping in CPU-X (which btw only shows what I put in smbios.plist).
Code: [Select]
sysctl -a | grep kern.cputhrottle and
Code: [Select]
sudo dmesg | grep -i voodoopower return nothing.

But
Code: [Select]
$ grep -i voodoopower /var/log/kernel.log

$ ioreg -lw0

    | +-o VoodooPowerMini  <class VoodooPowerMini, id 0x1000002e5, registered, matched, active, busy 0 (3 ms), retain 4>
    |     {
    |       "IOClass" = "VoodooPowerMini"
    |       "IOProviderClass" = "IOResources"
    |       "IOMatchCategory" = "VoodooPowerMini"
    |       "IOResourceMatch" = "IOKit"
    |       "CFBundleIdentifier" = "com.superhai.driver.VoodooPowerMini"
    |       "IOProbeScore" = 0
    |     }


  I'm on a ASUS P5B with a E8500. Mac OS X 10.6.2. Using Chameleon 2.0 RC3. Apart from VoodooPowerMini and VoodooHDA in /S/L/E, I'm using AHCIPortInjector.kext, JMicronATA.kext, NullCPUPowerManagement.kext, OpenHaltRestart.kext, PlatformUUID.kext, SleepEnabler.kext, fakesmc.kext in /E/E (EFI partititon).

  Am I doing something wrong? Is this behavior expected?

Thanks

Slaute

P.S.: I've read in the "Template for bug reporting" that there exists a debug version. Where can I get it?

Neither should return anything, I don't know where you got those from, and I don't know so much how CPU-X works.

Look in the news section for download links...

I see.
So, is there a way to know the cpu's current frequency?
