Powertop was not installed on my n900 by default, nor can I find it in the tools repository as described in the extras-testing wiki page. I am running 'apt-get install powertop' as root . How do I install it?

I have built a deb for Maemo 5, and I'll try to get it into Extras-devel. The build queue is very long at the moment so it may be several hours before it is available.

unfortunately there already is a powertop in a closed Nokia repo. I'll ask a Nokia rep to see about getting it added properly.

It's built-in, actually, just not in user's path.

Are you sure it hasn't been removed in the retail version? "find" can't find it, unless the name has been changed.

Hi,

powertop is not on the device and you cannot find it in a repository. There are some issues, but it might be that it will be added later on. I will keep you up-to-date on this.

Cheers Daniel

It's not contained in the USA image. I've pinged a Nokia rep, but I imagine I'll have to create a bug report for it.

Issues? I have the official 1.11 off of lesswatts.org installed on my N900 with the USA firmware. It works fine. I made a deb with the Maemo 5 SDK and SFTP'd it to my device.

that's a bummer. This is a must-have tool for my extras-testing.
