Speed of Raspberry Pi Zero W on devuan against raspbian lite

I installed the RPi1 version of devuan on the ZeroW, but did wonder why it seems to be slower than on raspbian lite.

After searching I did found that devuan uses the CPU governor "powersave" while raspbian uses "ondemand"

So after give the command
echo 'ondemand' > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cpufreq/scaling_governor
devuan should work fast as raspbian on a Raspberry Pi Zero W smile

That change will be reverted after a reboot.

To make it permanent add this line to the end of /etc/sysfs.conf (or in it's own file under /etc/sysfs.d/):

devices/system/cpu/cpu*/cpufreq/scaling_governor = ondemand
