The name is somewhat misleading, as any CPUfreq capable processor will work, not just those from AMD. However, it works better on CPUs that support more than two speed steps, like those with AMD's PowerNow! or Intel's Pentium M series.
This daemon is less complicated than cpufreqd or cpudyn, at the cost of absolutely depending on a 2.6 kernel with the userspace governor and sysfs support enabled.
Some notes on preparing a system for use with powernowd. The requirements for powernowd are really minimal. If you use a prebuilt 2.6 kernel package, all the required kernel modules are included. You just need to ensure they are loaded (cpufreq_userspace, and on my system also speedstep_centrino). One way to do this is to add them to /etc/modules, which will cause them to load at boot time (se more»
PowerNow Daemon, (c) 2003-2008 John Clemens Daemon to control the speed and voltage of CPUs. This is a simple client to the CPUFreq driver that uses Linux kernel v2.5/v2.6 sysfs interface. You need a supported CPU and a kernel that supports sysfs to run this daemon. The name is somewhat misleading, as this will work with any CPUfreq capable processor, not just processors supporting AMD's Pow more»
