Hi Peppermint People!

I'm installing PM4 on an Acer Aspire One netbook and following PCNetSpec's excellent guide! Thanks dude!

However, I cannot install TLP. I followed all the steps but get "unable to locate package tlp" errors.

Any thoughts? This thing runs very hot...

OK, seems the TLP repo no longer contains a version for raring, but the version for saucy seems to work perfectly.

can you send the output from:
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linrunner-tlp-raring.list

and
Code:
cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linrunner-tlp-raring.list.save

OK, open a terminal and run:
Code:
sudo sed -i 's/raring/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linrunner-tlp-raring.list

then:
Code:
sudo sed -i 's/raring/saucy/g' /etc/apt/sources.list.d/linrunner-tlp-raring.list.save

then:
Code:
sudo apt-get update

then:
Code:
sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw smartmontools ethtool

then start tlp with:
Code:
sudo tlp start

and check it's running with:
Code:
sudo tlp-stat | grep "TLP power save"


As long as (after a reboot) that last command still returns:-

TLP power save = enabled

you're good to go.

Thanks, that did the trick. Any recommendations on adjusting it to minimize heating up the cpu?

Thanks again!

it should do that anyway by throttling the CPU when it's not under load.

Run:
Code:
cat /proc/cpuinfo | grep MHz

whilst the netbook is idling.

Then run it again whilst watching a youtube video

you'll see the CPU frequency jump from 800MHz to 1600MHz

But if you want to try tweak it, there are configuration docs on the TLP homepage:
http://linrunner.de/en/tlp/tlp.html

================================================

Also keep an eye on the fan cutting in/out at the correct temperatures as per the tutorial.
