Disable Turbo Boost MacBook Pro (i7)


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 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 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?
