Hello,

You may all know that some (maybe all) MacBook Pros, especially the 2011-generation ones have some heat issues. After searching for some time I found this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1387883) on MacRumors.

In Windows I'm able to disbale Turbo Boost in the power preferences by setting the max power of the processor to 70% (enough for me).

There's a link to this .kext (https://github.com/nanoant/DisableTurboBoost.kext) but I can't get it working.

I've followed the steps in the description, but I just gets this message: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.


Get someone help please?
