Re: lubuntu cpu scaling....


Hi Bob,

I don't have a dual core, can you have a look through the instructions, feel
free to post it up as "Dual Core work in progress" on the baby area and
leave a note on it to say you're still working on it. As I do not have dual
core, I can not give any input at all. I'm sure Adam will be happy to chat
with you over it.
