When I run pwmconfig in Raring on my Thinkpad R61i I hear it working and going through the various fan speeds, but it produces a defective /etc/fancontrol with missing minima and maxima:
Fancontrol therefore won't start.
# Configuration file generated by pwmconfig, changes will be lost
Currently the fan runs much faster than it did under Windows when it wasn't quite fast enough to cool the hard disk . Ideally I want a moderate degree of cooling somewhere between the two OS defaults. How can I achieve this?
