Ah! I cranked up xbmc in windowed mode, which likes it's share of CPU,
and got this:
cpufrequtils 006: cpufreq-info (C) Dominik Brodowski 2004-2009
Report errors and bugs to firstname.lastname@example.org, please.
analyzing CPU 0:
CPUs which run at the same hardware frequency: 0
CPUs which need to have their frequency coordinated by software: 0
maximum transition latency: 109 us.
hardware limits: 1000 MHz - 2.00 GHz
available frequency steps: 2.00 GHz, 1000 MHz
available cpufreq governors: conservative, ondemand, userspace,
current policy: frequency should be within 1000 MHz and 2.00 GHz.
The governor "ondemand" may decide which speed to use
within this range.
current CPU frequency is 2.00 GHz.
cpufreq stats: 2.00 GHz:23.18%, 1000 MHz:76.82% (888)
So, it does work, I just needed to really task the CPU for the system to
BTW, xbmc is one helluva multimedia application. Find "toxic-friend.mod"
and crank up xbmc with /settings/music/playback set to Project M, you'll
have one snazzy light show and bewilder your kids!.
Use the tab key to get rid of the menu and use the key to switch
between windowed and full screen mode. Way cool, especially for us OLD
hipsters who still like to rock.
For the latest beta just head over here:
...and follow the Ubuntu instructions. The version in the repo just
started seg faulting on me, so I just enabled the ppa for xbmc.
