    Now in the Stable feeds.

    Features:

    • New vdemand governor
    • Dynamic voltage scaling based on CPU load for VDD1 and VDD2
    • Runs at full speed 1.005GHz, all the time. No freq scaling required.

    To Do:

    • Somekind of temp scaleback * Done
    • Charger scaleback * Done


    To change VDD1 and VDD2 voltages:
    The 3 numbers mean High to low in terms of CPU utilization. The higher the number, the higher the voltage. The far right number means 70-100% CPU load, middle number 30-69%, far left number 0-29%, Assuming the CPU wont take much power running at low util, you can set a lower voltage. YMMV.

    Enjoy!

    Do we need to add anything new to Govnah to support vdemand, or does it just work?

    Govnah seems to display the vdd1/2 fields fine in vdemand, unless you want to mimic the standard vdd1_vsel drop down? There are no other variables yet. override needs a major overhaul for this.

    Looks great going to test this on my Palm Pre Plus. So far seems faster then f105 scored 604 on webos mark. Great kernel so far keep up the great work.

    My phone just crashed right when I was switching pages. I had just closed WebOSMark after running it. Here's my /var/log/messages:

    I've been using it pretty heavily since I got it! Good so far feels as snappy SR71 until it comes to launching apps. At that point I can sense a difference. I absolutely love the no lag when screen turns on that present in all the screenstate kernels. No crashes either.

    Highest WebOSMark is 601.
    Thank you for this awesome kernel! Will inform if/when something big happens!

    UPDATE** My camera was slower than it was at 1.0Ghz TChief. Even became unresponsive for a few seconds after I took a picture. But its all better now. May have happened because I had a few other apps running though.

    It's been about 2-3 times that my phone has gotten stuck on the lock screen and the only way to get it out is by pressing the power button.

    For instance, today my phone restarted due to Preset Reset. After words, the screen should have been off since it was on the Touchstone and I have a Mode Switcher mode to do so. When I looked at the phone, it was on the Touchstone lock screen and was unresponsive to touches. Pressing the power button twice turned off the screen.

    If anyone is having lockup problems, simply adjust the voltage settings. if things are stable after changing, report those numbers back in so I can take an average and make it default.

    Remember, this is a testing kernel.

    Govnah doesn't allow me to change Av8B voltage. Once I leave the screan and come back the numbers has reset. Tried unistalling govnah, and going to a different version.

    I look forward to d/l-ing this when I leave the office building (cr@p reception inside).
    My highest WebOS Mark score was 660.9 for the F014A (1.4.5-110 build) as I cannot run SR71 on my girlie pre (-).

    I am sure that it will be stable for me; but I of course will report any issues!
    Thanks Unix for the continued kernel wonderstuff!!

    My phone's screen turns on intermittently while running the kernel. When I turn it off, the screen wakes again every few minutes.

    But otherwise, the kernel feels speedier than Thunderchief.

    I noticed that. Must be Govnah problem, blame Oil.

    I know from the CLI it changes fine.

    installed and running very snappy, noticed that email, cal are loading significantly faster than F105. No Issues so far

    So far I have had zero issues with AVB8 - no lockups, no overheating, load averages are deliciously low, battery life is deliciously high. It really sips on the battery during idle time.

    And I'm running a girlie pre -- the only way I could boot SR71 was to put the device out in the freezing cold for several minutes. (By the way, protip from a semiconductor engineer: if you ever get stuck in a reset loop due to excessive overclock, try to tossing your device into the freezer for a few minutes. )

    question... would i need to remove my thunder chief kernel first before downloading this kernel?? or can i just download it?

    Remove it, then install this new one. You don't need to do a phone restart though. I'm pretty sure.

    So what are the 'benefits' from using this kernel, unixpsycho?
