Change the CPU frequency with GNOME CPUFreq Applet

A new GNOME CPUFreq Applet release is available for download

The most important new feature is the frequency selector. Although it’s a feature requested by many people, I’ve not included it before now because of security reasons. By default the frequency selector is installed suid root. But you can avoid it by using –enable-suid=no as a configure script argument or even if you don’t want to install the frequency selector you can use –disable-frequency-selector

The frequency selector is not cpufreq-applet specific, but it’s a generic tool that it can be used by other applications.
