There are now updates for 2009.1 in http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1025783/eee-control-0.8.4-1jw.mdv2009.1.noarch.rpm and the source RPM is at http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/1025783/eee-control-0.8.4-1jw.mdv2009.1.src.rpm
All models of Asus eee can be over or underclocked to varying degrees depending on their hardware. On the 701 and 900 models the FSB (front side bus) speed can be adjusted, while on 901 and 1000 models both FSB and PCI bus speeds are controllable. This is in addition to automatic CPU speed adjustment which is dynamically performed by the Linux kernel in Mandriva.
A package called eee-control has been developed by eeeuser community member 'marx' to have a systemtray applet to manage over/underclocking as well as other functions such as fan control. The project page for eee-control can be found at http://greg.geekmind.org/eee-control/
eee-control has been repackaged for use with Mandriva 2009.0 as an RPM package available from here eee-control-0.8.4-1dj2009.0.noarch.rpm (If this link is broken look in the eeeuser Mandriva forum for a link to the latest version.)
To install eee-control simply click on the link above using Firefox or Konqueror web browsers. You will be prompted if you want to open the file with “Software Installer”. On clicking gurpmi will install the package as well as its dependencies which include python-smbus.
Open Mandriva Control Centre>System>Services and check the box to start eee-control on boot. This will start the eee-control backend. You also need to start the front end which you will find under Menu>Tools>SystemTools>eee-control. You will then see an 'Eee' icon appear in the system tray. eee-control will work in Gnome, Kde3, Kde4, LXDE, XFce and other desktops.
If you think you have a problem with eee-control, stop the service in Mandriva Control Centre, open a terminal, enter su to become root user and enter:
You will see diagnostic messages.
If you think you have identified a bug in eee-control mention it in the eeeuser Mandriva forum before contacting the author. It may be a packaging problem.
