my processor is a Core2Duo 2.16 GHz (macbook 4.1) but cpufreq only shows four Governors: conservative ondemand powersave performance

no shows interactive and userspace

the governor that I've always liked is interactive, inclusive is the one I use in my google nexus one, I've always been successful

is there any way to activate or select interactive as governor in ubuntu 11.04?

Greetings and thanks in advance

The interactive governor is made by/for Cyanogenmod, so it's not in the mainline and hence not in the Ubuntu kernel.

It will land in Ubuntu if it's merged into the mainline kernel.
