In order to decrease the power consumption of the laptop, which runs at a high CPU temperature and performance even when not in use, I would like to modulate the CPU frequencies. I am aware of CLI options but would like the ease and convenience of a GUI.
What is the best way to implement this?
Do I download cpupower-gui.rpm, check the hash, move it to dom0 and install it with sudo dnf install ./*.rpm?
My system is a laptop and runs so damn hot. And it doesn’t happen with Parrot, or Kali, or Debian, or any other OS.
I don’t understand why I need to manually lower temperatures in Qubes so much. Xenpm takes so long to use and I get invalid responses. I get “failed to set max freq - invalid argument” and the arguments seem correct. I am typing "xenpm set-scaling-maxfreq ‘value’ " and ‘value’ is the lowest minimum frequency for all the CPUs.
It’s a CPU frequency scaling driver. You can check xenpm get-cpufreq-para in the scaling_driver lines to see if you’re using hwp or acpi or something else. It’s possible that your cores are not scaling down when there’s nothing to do and this might be why your laptop runs so hot.
If you want to give hwp a try you can add cpufreq=xen:hwp in your grub (in the Xen options) and reboot.
