  1. Re: HOWTO: Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 - enabling special keys

    A few weeks ago a new kernel came out. Still, the 4000 is not supported. Why is that? The patch is out and submitted, people use the keyboard and it's still for sale. I just don't understand. Is it...

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    I guess the fan would last longer if it's at a constant speed. Then again, a fan is 30 or something, even with regular changing of the speed it will last for a long time, and the computer is MUCH...

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Ha! For me it was exactly the other way around, the Windows Speedfan would have it constantly revving up and then down, like it was on a treshold value. Very annoying!

    I tweaked a bit and have it running like this all the time. What exactly do you mean with "leave it running like in windows?" When the CPU heats up, the fan starts turning faster, so in that respect...

    You forgot step one:

    First, you need to set up lm-sensors. This is explained here. That's for Warty, but still works under Dapper (and Hoary)....

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    If you haven't changed your fan speed, it's set to maximum. You can only lower the fan speed with this program. If you don't want to lower your speed, don't use it!

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    If you can't be sure if what you are hearing is hd or fan hum, you have to ask yourself if you really need to lower the fan speed at all. Also, as stated, if you aren't a 110% sure of what you are...

    For starters: do not try to patch the pwmconfig thing if you are running dapper. It's been fixed, you no longer need to patch the script.
