It is not supported by the kernel. Most of original Kirkwood plugs have very low power consumption at idle so that was never considered.

Since we have now several Kirkwood NAS that could use the feature, I will add it to the next release if so requested.

I'd be very happy if you could do that.
Don't forget that there are countries with very high energy prices.

Well,

uBoot is stuck after loading the Kernel with linux-4.11.3-kirkwood-tld-2. The kernel does not boot up after loading. I am still using linux-4.10.9-kirkwood-tld-1 which works fine for me but without cpufreq of course.
I boot with DTB files included in the kernel and EXT2 for boot partition.

Do you have serial console? and what did you try to set in Debian before rebooting?

Yeah, I have a serial console.
After U-Boot is done with loading the kernel and ramdisk, nothing happens.

lolinger,

The cpufreq is working on a few of my boxes with linux-4.11.3-kirkwood-tld-2.

If you don't post your serial console boot log then I have no idea what's wrong with your NSA325 :)

If you'd like me to help figure out, then power up, interrupt serial console and
printenv
boot

Same problem here with fresh install on NSA325v2 with rootfs Debian-4.4.0-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2. After installing linux-4.11.3-kirkwood-tld-2-bodhi.tar.bz2 and reboot the NSA is stuck in Loading Kernel. With 4.10.9 its working.

andreasnsa & lolinger,

I'm running my NSA325v2 with this latest kernel linux-4.11.3-kirkwood-tld-2 for a while. And just rebooted it a couple days ago. So not sure what is the problem in your box.

1. Which u-boot are you running in your box? my latest release, or stock?
2. If running my u-boot image, do you have netconsole? Please post that log.
3. Do you have serial console, and if yes, please post the serial boot log.

This is relatively new version. So to set the envs correctly and boot into Debian :

1. Create the Debian rootfs if you have not done so, using Debian-4.4.0-kirkwood-tld-1-rootfs-bodhi.tar.bz2 (or use your existing rootfs if you already have one before that boots OK):

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096

2. And then follow the instruciton in this post to create the default envs file uEnv.txt:

http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,14351,23556#msg-23556

3. Boot and watch serial console. Post the bootlog here if you have problem booting completely into Debian.
