Kernel parameters

Tango-inaccurate.pngThe factual accuracy of this article or section is disputed.Tango-inaccurate.png

Reason: No reference or explanation why these specific parameters were chosen. "System will be unstable" could mean anything (Discuss in Talk:Dell Inspiron 7375)

System will be unstable without kernel parameters. For linux 5.4 and newer, use:

quiet acpi_osi=Linux idle=nomwait

Power management

Tango-edit-clear.pngThis article or section needs language, wiki syntax or style improvements. See Help:Style for reference.Tango-edit-clear.png

Reason: No references whatsoever, manual cpupower commands that are lost on reboot (Discuss in Talk:Dell Inspiron 7375)

On AC power

To address thermal issues, use the schedutil governor instead of ondemand:

# cpupower frequency-set -g schedutil
# echo auto > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level

On battery

To improve battery time, use the powersave governor:

# cpupower frequency-set -g powersave
# echo low > /sys/class/drm/card0/device/power_dpm_force_performance_level

For further improvements, see Power saving or TLP.

Fan Control

Install the nbfcAUR package.

Disable IPMI

There is no support for IPMI in this laptop. Blacklist sp5100_tco in /etc/modprobe.d/sp5100_tco.conf:

blacklist sp5100_tco

This will prevent some warnings while booting.

Disable Time Throttling STAPM

Is you only want CPU/GPU temperature-based throttling, install ryzenadj-gitAUR and run:

# ryzenadj --slow-time=0xffffffff --stapm-time=0xffffffff

Run this command before running high demand tasks. The setting will be disabled after suspension.


See Broadcom.
