cpupower no worky – sorry, but if you can’t understand the thread maybe there is no real problem.
but the fact is this is a bug that exists and the internet doesn’t know why.
supposedly there is a way to set the cpu governor to performance, or to remove imposed cpu limits. a way that is persistent after a reboot. do you know of a way to do that? i am still (after a month) not satisfied (not happy) that there exists (is) a way (method) to do it. (it == set cpu governor to performance permanently)
# Define CPUs governor
# valid governors: ondemand, performance, powersave, conservative, userspace.
# Limit frequency range
# Valid suffixes: Hz, kHz (default), MHz, GHz, THz
# Specific frequency to be set.
# Requires userspace governor to be available.
# Do not set governor field if you use this one.
# Utilizes cores in one processor package/socket first before processes are
# scheduled to other processor packages/sockets.
# See man (1) CPUPOWER-SET for additional details.
# Utilizes thread siblings of one processor core first before processes are
# scheduled to other cores. See man (1) CPUPOWER-SET for additional details.
# Sets a register on supported Intel processore which allows software to convey
# its policy for the relative importance of performance versus energy savings to
# the processor. See man (1) CPUPOWER-SET for additional details.

in reflection, during the course of setting up for using the computer to do heavy duty realtime processing, i followed the wrong advice by installing cpupower. now i suppose i am to understand that Manjaro KDE Plasma doesn’t “clip” the cpu performance. I will for now, apologize for this impertinent thread, unless I find out the CPU is being limited by some other means at which point I will resume the search for any such ghosts if they exist. Thanks.
Manjaro Users: don’t use cpupower or cpupower-gui, these need to be removed from the repos with prejudice.
because running a Linux system is either a career in of itself, or a full time hobby at least. surely you are aware how many of these programs cascade into an avalanche of stuff that needs to be stored in the brain. that’s why software exists, as tools that are supposed to make things easier, not make more and more demands on the end user.
cpupower-gui isn’t part of Manjaro, that was my mistake. I’ve spent too many hours on too many threads trying too many random things and got frustrated. Everybody has a smart answer, i try the smart suggestions, and lately i’ve been getting nowhere. it’s the weather or something. also this isn’t the only issue regarding the establishment of a new workstation that i’ve been stymied by.
for now, i have uninstalled cpupower so let’s see what happens. maybe it’ll brick the system
Nah. That was true at the beginning, but not today. There are enough user-friendly Linux distributions to run and use them out-of-the-box without needing to read anything.
It’s whenever something does not work as intended that one needs to dig under the hood, and be cautious about it. But that is true with any operating system.

i’m not sure, even doing the basic stuff i want to do, such as quantum entanglement mesh topology analysis and living tissue molecular addressing and psycho-genetic permutation mapping, i had to learn quite a few new programs, (as well as find a way to remove cpu limitations)
