    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    I don't know what I did wrong along the way but I had problems getting fancontrol to start at boot time correctly.

    1. I had to go into my BIOS and disable the CPU Fan Control system. pwmconfig would detect and operate the fans and set up a fancontrol profile, but the profile was doing nothing because the BIOS was overriding the input.

    2. I had to do the same renaming of the fancontrol.pid as described very early in the thread.

    3. I had to use sudo update-rc.d -f fancontrol remove
    followed by sudo update-rc.d fancontrol defaults to get it to start correctly at boot time.

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Code:
    Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ...
    
    Common settings:
      INTERVAL=10
    
    Settings for hwmon2/device/pwm1:
      Depends on hwmon3/device/temp1_input
      Controls hwmon2/device/fan1_input
      MINTEMP=35
      MAXTEMP=50
      MINSTART=18
      MINSTOP=18
      MINPWM=10
      MAXPWM=75
    
    Enabling PWM on fans...
    Starting automatic fan control...
    Got fancontrol working on my atom 330 little falls motherboard..

    Only the Minstart and minstop do not look right?

    Any ideas?

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    first of all, thx alot folks for this! it just works.!
    but, (of cause it cant be said without a _but_), well, i have it adjusting my CPU fan flawlessly, but want my GPU in the process too..
    ive tried this, but cant seem to make it work:
    Code:
    # Configuration file generated by pwmconfig, changes will be lost
    GPUTEMP=/usr/bin/nvidia-settings -q [gpu:0]/GPUCoreTemp\ | grep "Attribute" | sed -e "s/.*: //g" -e "s/\.//g"
    INTERVAL=10
    DEVPATH=hwmon0=devices/platform/it87.656 hwmon1=devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:18.3
    DEVNAME=hwmon0=it8712 hwmon1=k10temp
    FCTEMPS=hwmon0/device/pwm1=hwmon1/device/temp1_input hwmon0/device/pwm2=GPUTEMP
    FCFANS=hwmon0/device/pwm1=hwmon0/device/fan1_input hwmon0/device/pwm2=hwmon0/device/fan2_input
    MINTEMP=hwmon0/device/pwm1=45 hwmon0/device/pwm2=45
    MAXTEMP=hwmon0/device/pwm1=50 hwmon0/device/pwm2=55
    MINSTART=hwmon0/device/pwm1=150 hwmon0/device/pwm2=150
    MINSTOP=hwmon0/device/pwm1=50 hwmon0/device/pwm2=50
    MAXPWM=hwmon0/device/pwm1=255 hwmon0/device/pwm2=255
    i really do hope that some of you guys/gals in here can/will help me out on this one...

    thx in advance,
    -Anbech

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    NEVERMIND! got to work!

    it was kind of a hassle and had to change some things inside "/usr/sbin/fancontrol", "/etc/fanctrol", and some other stuff...

    ive packed down the files if anyone else should encounter the same, with the files as they should be to work with CPU and GPU (nVidia) fans. my gpu fan is connected to the motherboard, but it might work if its connected to the gpu too..

    i can NOT guarantee that itll work for others, but it _should_ just by editing the "/etc/fancontrol" file, to your needs.

    btw, remember to sudo chmod 755 the files after they are extracted to their right place.

    oh, and for starting the process i have to use "sudo fancontrol &" and for stopping it "sudo /etc/init.d/fancontrol stop" .. kinda weird i know, but it works
    still havent figured out how to make it start upon ubuntu startup (yet a thing to be made)

    the package can be downloaded here (permanent link) :
    fancontrol.zip

    hope some of you can use it too auto adjusting both cpu and gpu (nVidia) fans.
    cheers

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    My laptop fan is constantly running, and I'm trying to find a way to fix it.

    Here is my output when I run sensors.

    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +48.0°C  (crit = +99.0°C)                  
    
    k10temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1:       +48.0°C  (high = +70.0°C, crit = +109.5°C)
    I don't have a sensors.conf file in /etc/ to modify, so I'm not sure what to do next. Can anyone help?

    That doesn't show any fan sensors, which most likely means that there are none. Many laptops don't have them, or at least, nothing is detected by lm-sensors. I'd suggest searching for your specific brand and model, hopefully someone else had the same problem and got it fixed.

    I've looked and I can't seem to find any way to fix the problem. The laptop I have is an HP Pavilion dv6.

    Right, I am going to post some suggestions in the other thread.

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Got the fancontrol working really nicely. This old Asus A7V880 MB gives the CPU fan only some minimum or then maximum and nothing between those. This is my /etc/fancontrol setup for Athlon XP 2800+ based machine running Ubuntu 10.04 32bit:

    # Configuration file generated by pwmconfig, changes will be lost
    INTERVAL=10
    DEVPATH=hwmon0=devices/platform/it87.3072
    DEVNAME=hwmon0=it8712
    FCTEMPS= hwmon0/device/pwm1=hwmon0/device/temp1_input
    FCFANS= hwmon0/device/pwm1=hwmon0/device/fan1_input
    MINTEMP= hwmon0/device/pwm1=50
    MAXTEMP= hwmon0/device/pwm1=65
    MINSTART= hwmon0/device/pwm1=101
    MINSTOP= hwmon0/device/pwm1=100
    MINPWM=hwmon0/device/pwm1=90

    CPU temp keeps at 54C at idle and the fan is at 1380RPM. Under load the CPU temp rises up to 57C and then the fan is at 1750RPM. That's the highest temp which I got currently. With the ASUS Q-Fan control the CPU fan is at 1200RPM until some configured limit has been reached. Then it pumps the fan to maximum speed up to something like 2600RPM and that I can also hear

    looks like the package is outdated
    I am building a new version if it matters
