Disabling CPU throttling on Slackware Linux 13.1
After some time away from Slackware I decided to start using it again. So, after installing a lot of packages successfully I got my first problem trying to install ATLAS (Automatically Tuned Linear Algebra Software) from Slackbuilds.org. After running the script I got the following error message:
CPU Throttling apparently enabled!
It appears you have cpu throttling enabled, which makes timings
unreliable and an ATLAS install nonsensical. Aborting.
Searching on Google I found the following command to disable CPU throttling:
cpufreq-selector -g performance
But for some reason I got a message saying that the governor (-g parameter) was not valid. Then I figured out that the following comand should be used instead:
cpufreq-set -g performance
I don`t know the reason, but by using this I was able to compile Atlas and then finally Scipy.
