Free software developer and more

Yesterday, Intel released the PowerTOP utility. It allows to monitor closely the power consumption and to diagnose what software is using the most power.

It requires (at least) a 2.6.21 kernel with /proc/timer_stat (enabled through CONFIG_TIMER_STATS, [commit]).

I've just made this tool available in Mandriva Cooker, in the powertop package. I'm afraid it will unearth some very bad habits from net_applet... (will try as soon as we have a 2.6.21 kernel ready for Cooker)
