    ok, thanks.

    What version of Govnah are you running?

    yes, I have read it thoroughly. I just thought it was adequately described above by eblade (I'm also in bed with the TP). And I've also not seen any change in performance. When it crops up again I'll fully describe the settings in govnah, etc.

    edit: I'm not saying, "I'm freaking out that my tp idles with c1@192 and c2@0," I'm saying that even with turbo mode enabled and under full load cpu2 doesn't budge, regardless of any change in settings, and that it doesn't report correctly again until I perform a full restart. I am not sure, however, what set of circumstances triggers the condition. I will report back when it resurfaces.
    Mine occured immediately after putting it on z touchstone, when it went to N/A. Any further attempts to mess with CPU parameters resulted in error that the directories needed in /proc were not there. Same happens if I turn off turbo mode and wait a while, except it reports 0 instead of NA. If I leave turbo mode on, for the most part, it seems good, except that one time it glitched.

    Curious question about the CPU speed governor if any one has some opinions. . What settings would I look into adjusting if I wanted it to actually step upwards, instead of switching basically between 192 and 1.7g ? It seems like a single tap on the screen shouldn't result in it jumping to full load and then dropping immediately back to idle.

    Agreed, if turbo mode is off, cpu2 will appear to be stuck at 0; if it's on it'll show N/A. It also coincides with the "unable to open /sys/devices..." error that occurs when trying to change govnah advanced profile settings. I can't figure out when it happens though. It appears to be random.

    oh, and the governor setting you're looking for is "conservative" instead of ondemand

    After all those posts, I still have not seen any logs, or even steps to reproduce.

    fwiw - i've been living with the 2nd core reporting N/A issue for weeks. only a reboot gets it out of this funk. seems as though inactivity always brings about this condition.

    i figure sooner or later unixpsycho/rwhitby will figure it out, so i continue to patiently wait. no big deal.

    which logs do we want? I'll be happy to try to repro when I'm not actively working.

    Nice, so you are assuming that we are going to read everyone's mind and fix something we can magically exhume out of thin air?

    At least this is in theory. I tested it by having some outrageous overclock on my TP to make it hang. But mine doesnt hang with the settings I had before. So some feedback would help.
    Unixpsycho, have been running F15C-80 and Govnah 1.2.3 this week after ~ month away; went straight to 1.89GHz, SIO, Westwood and upthreshold at 65%. Am pleased to report that L2_Boost does <not> result in a hang. It doesn't change the value in Govnah to a 1 either, but that doesn't really matter... Wireless N with Westwood works better than standard kernel (range & fewer drops). Temperature range remains between 36-40.

    - Core2 has <never> reported 0 or N/A in Govnah (wouldn't be an issue to me if it did.
    Core idling is, after all, a feature)
    - No Wi-Fi drops
    - No random re-boots
    - battery consumption actually appears to be on par if not lower than 3.04 stock (????)
    - Performance, Performance, Performance!!!
    Sunspider: 2286ms, 2382ms
    Lithium HD: 77, 77, 72

    The only oddity (I can't bring myself to call it an "issue"), is that periodically the ***** ripple will show up very boldly in an area of the screen that I have not touched (no bluetooth keyboard for me). For example, in Govnah, just updated Tweaks; upon seeing the Application Updated message, the ***** ripple shows up boldly over the "OK" even though I haven't touched the screen. Doesn't happen consistently, and has happened in more than one app.

    If you have any troubleshooting things you'd like me to do, let me know.

    Aside from that one minutiae item, I am VERY impressed with the performance characteristics and smoothness. Are there any additionally amusing things that it would help for me to try to really push the envelope? After all, this is Alpha... and I have yet to bonk... I have read the rules and then some; note that while I have the attitude, my Linux Kung-** skills are weak, so may require some level of direction.

    Keep up the great work!

    Is it possible to leave l2_boost and power_saver on after a reboot? It's a great kernel, I'm having no issues Good work!

    You'll have to make an upstart script to make it stick at boot for now. Or you can bribe oil and rwhitby in the Govnah thread to make it save it in the Govnah profile.

    You are among the few that can run at 1.89GHz *and* L2 boost . You are already at the envelope. The only thing that is left is to play with voltages, from a user perspective.

    It should be saved as part of the override module in Govnah 1.2.3

    I have <two> 32 Gb touchpads; one is mine (day 1)... My 1st WebOS device. Ever. Shameful, eh? And I like and support WebOS (I will come out of the closet now... I am an HP employee ( Still!)... Former Sr. Engineer and Unix manager and everything...)

    After seeing what I've done with mine, based on what you and Rod and WebOS Internals have done, my wife and daughter just gave me permission to have my way with theirs, too... Will 1st get the 11 year old to go through how to rock her Touchpad... (Yes, my daughter is a budding geekstress). She < loved> how your kernel and some other (undocumented) changes to some config files and what rwhitby has enabled in Govnah has resulted in the fastest posted WebOS ratings to date (snapshot in time, earlier today and flawed as are all benchmarks...)
    Sunspider: 2286.1 ms, 2387.0 ms
    Lithium HD: 77, 77, 72

    While a few of the CM7 results are now coming in as a bit faster, it appears to me that those are likely browser related vs. Kernel imho. Ergo, I could care less. Not too interested in Debian, Ubuntu, CM7 or ICS. Given encouragement, willing to try, but I really like what y'all have done with WebOS and support it. I think you can beat 'em.

    While my <Linux> Kung-Foo is weak, I long ago started with assembly (upgrade to 16kb RAM was exciting at the time), and stopped about the time that C+ was new... I shall now go forth and research voltages, as I did with I/O scheduling.

    Thank you for reinvigorating my inner geek. More to follow... Again, thank you for your <fantastic> work!

    say more about the override module in 1.2.3 pretty please. I've read the rules, and more... whilst having seen nothing about this potentially intriguing feature...

    interesting twist to the 2nd core govnah reporting N/A issue. after performing the following, for no real good reason, the N/A issue is gone:

    * ran EFV
    * ran EPR
    * ran 3.04 doctor

    but now, after leaving on dock overnight, both cores are pegged @1.89. flipping turbo calms down core2, but nothing short of reboot calms them both down. message file attached.

    Edit: Govnah v1.2.3 F15C-80

    Did F15 get moved to the Alpha feed by any chance? I used F15 kernel almost since I got my TP. I removed it before upgrading to 3.0.4 and have been waiting to see it reappear in my beta-kernel feed, but haven't seen it yet. All I have in the feed is F4 and Uberkernel. Any suggestions?
