 Hi again,

I am confused about CPU THROTTLING.

How can I switch off CPU throttling on SuSE Linux 10.2 ?

I found a command "cpufreq-set" but I don't know how to proceed.

ATLAS uses gfortran by default but I have used g77 to build BLAS/LAPACK.

Can I replace gfortran in Make.inc by g77 ?

I have used

/usr/local/src/ATLAS/configure -Fa alg -fPIC -Si cputhrchk 0

to configure ATLAS (3.7.28)
