Need a Cpu-Frequence Tool and Indicator?

Sun Mar 04, 2018 6:02 am

Hey,

I Need a Cpu-Frequence Tool and Indicator? (Desbian and Ubuntu have them)

What can I do with Solus?

I want to set my AMD Ryzen CPU at Max!!!

I hope this is not for your laptop ...

For informations, you may found something by looking in the installer tool with 'sysinfo'.

If you want to overclocking the proper way it's in the BIOS and you should be carefull with it if you don't want to fry your computer.

But with a laptop you shouldn't have the opportunity to do it in BIOS for a good reason. The device need to adjust frequency following needs and throttling due of high temp.

Nope. It's for my Desktop. I've BIOS O/Ced it.

I like to see my speeds and temps under Linux but can't do it in Solus as of now. Works perfectly under Desbian Testing! :)

Come on Solus help us here?! :)

Please... Please... Please.... haha :)

To monitoring your cpu frequency you can use this command:

Code: Select all

watch -n1 "cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep \"^[c]pu MHz\""

comments are in french but it shouldn't be too much disturbing.

You should have something like this :

That's what I used to overclock my processor on Linux .

Thank you.

When I have more time I'll try it out.

One question I have for you? Where do you put that code? When I install that app will it be pretty clear where to add the code?

I think it's a .conkyrc file in your home directory.

Well,
and edit ~/.conkyrc with this code
means :
  • ~/.conkyrc = /home/troybox/.conkyrc (same thing)
  • In nautilus, ctrl+h shows the hidden files. if there is a .conkyrc, edit it, otherwise create it, & paste the code in it.
  • After, open your terminal :

Code: Select all

conky
that's all :)
