Can I change cpupower to tlp?


I would like to change cpupower to tlp because tlp have got more features. However, cpupower is a linux kernel tool so I don’t know If I could remove it without errors.

What do you think about that?


Why would you want to remove it though? (cpupower)
As you say it’s just some tool. Simply don’t use it if you don’t want to…

There is a service to apply settings during boot. However it shouldn’t be doing anything unless you’ve configured it to do so. The service can be disabled with systemctl disable cpupower.
(I think it’s disabled by default anyways though)

@moson , thanks you.

Yes, of course. I have been using cpupower but not now, so it run during boot.

Ok, I will disable the service and It should be enough.

$ systemctl status cpupower
○ cpupower.service - Apply cpupower configuration
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/cpupower.service; disabled; vendor preset: disabled)
     Active: inactive (dead)
