Basically, I'm trying to reduce the thermals of an Ubuntu install and trying everything. Quiet as can be in Windows 10 except for gaming, as it should be; Ubuntu fans rev up to 75-100% doing simple tasks.
Anyway, going down the list of things to try and PowerTOP is one of them.
sudo powertop --calibrate --html enough times to have enough measurements for doing
--auto-tune. Was getting errors related to there not being enough measurements.
Now when I run
sudo powertop --auto-tune I just get the following output. Isn't clear to me if it is working, but seem like it isn't:
modprobe cpufreq_stats failedLoaded 435 prior measurements RAPL device for cpu 0 RAPL Using PowerCap Sysfs : Domain Mask f RAPL device for cpu 0 RAPL Using PowerCap Sysfs : Domain Mask f Devfreq not enabled glob returned GLOB_ABORTED Leaving PowerTOP
So what gives here? Googling isn't helping much.
Otherwise, I've tried
tlp and a few other things. Only marginally help in reducing fan noise.
