To do anything useful with bbcpufreq you'll need 2 things:
1) Setup cpufreqd to use unix socket for local communication -- in [General] section
of /etc/cpufreqd.conf set line:
2) You also have to be able to read cpufreqd socket. One way is to run bbcpufreq
with with root's privileges. If you use sudo, you can just put following line to
username ALL = NOPASSWD: path/to/bbcpufreq
Another way is to set group ownership for cpufreqd socket. In [General] section of
/etc/cpufreqd.conf set line:
remote_group = user_group
Don't forget to replace user_group with desired value. This way you don't need
root's privileges at all.
Using bbcpufreq is simple -- just click on the program icon to bring up program menu.
The menu lets you select power profile (as defined in cpufreqd conf. file) and/or
tell cpufreqd to go dynamic (cpufreqd decides about power policy) or to go manual
(user is able to select power profile).
