    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    I kinda got lm-senosors working. I can't find my chipset in /etc/sensors3.conf. I think it's Intel HM55. I have an Inspiron 1564. Here is the output from sensors.

    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:        +26.8C  (crit = +100.0C)
    temp2:         +0.0C  (crit = +100.0C)
    
    coretemp-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 0:       +62.0C  (high = +80.0C, crit = +90.0C)
    
    coretemp-isa-0001
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    Core 2:       +64.0C  (high = +80.0C, crit = +90.0C)
    I'd like to get lm-sensors working correctly/fully so I can use fancontrol.

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Hello,
    does anybody knows, how to enable fancontrol, if pwm says "no, there are no sensors"?
    I think, most users without working fancontrol suffer at this point.

    I got this issue with a Toshiba Satellite. sensors just detects the thermal sensors, managed by coretemp, but no fan.
    thanx for replying

    Actually, my fancontrol, for instance, doesn't survive a hibernation or suspend.


    Have fan.

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Hi. Is it possible to preserve the fan speed after stopping fancontrol service? I would like to let the fan speed constant after rebooting the computer.

    Now when I reboot the computer, after shutdown of all services, the fan start to spin very fast, like without fancontrol. In Windows, I use speedfan and it preserves the fan speed after its shutdown.

    Hi

    i am on Ubuntu P. The processor is Intel i3. a desktop.

    i installed lm-sensors and below is the report "sensors" gave

    temp3: +127.0C (high = +80.0C, hyst = +75.0C) ALARM sensor = thermistor
    cpu0_vid: +2.050 V
    intrusion0: OK

    radeon-pci-0100
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    temp1: +70.5C


    The fans sensors are detecting 0 RPM and some temperatures are out of range - the ALARMs above but i dont understand it very well. Can someone help out?

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Hello All,

    I just upgraded to Ubuntu 13.04 64bit from Ubuntu 12.10 64bit. Fan control was working perfectly in Ubuntu 12.10 but now when I do sudo pwmconfig it says "hwmon2/device/pwm1_enable stuck to 2, Manual control mode not supported, skipping hwmon2/device/pwm1.
    There are no usable PWM outputs." Like I said it was working like a dream but after the upgrade not working? It would be nice to get this working, I use max fan on my T61 when editing music or other cpu intensive stuf and it really keeps the lappy cool. Anyone have any ideas how to get this working??

    Cheers,

    Singtoh

    It has already happened to me, but with my laptop, not because of the fans, but because of some accumulated "thrash" inside of it.
    (sorry for my english)

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    Hello All,

    Well I got it going after looking at the How to fancontrol page. I was using this:"For example, in Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron), add the following to /etc/modprobe.d/options: options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1" from that page. Now I am using this:"For Debian Squeeze (testing) create /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf with: options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1 and install the package thinkfan" from the same page and it works just fine. I am using Ubuntu 13.04-64. I still have fancontrol installed along with thinkfan but I think this file is what fixed it for me:/etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf and inserting this:
    options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1 into that file.

    Cheers,

    Singtoh

    Re: HOWTO: Fancontrol

    If you are not getting all your sensors identified, you may have a newer motherboard chipset with the repo version of lm-sensors cannot see.

    To get the latest version of lm-sensors go to lm-sensors.org and click on the Devices Support Status link

    In the blurb at the top of this page you will find a link to download the latest version of sensors-detect. It is a standalone script so no compiling needed.

    Once downloaded, make it executable and run it e.g.

    Code:
    sudo ~/Downloads/sensors-detect
    With any luck you will then find your sensors and be able to run pwmconfig.

    With the correct chipset sensor module defined I had to go back to the Devices Support Status page and grab the source code for the module, a quick and easy make & sudo make install & sudo modprobe nct6775 got me up and running. (It was nct6775 in my case, may be different for you)

    This worked for me with an Asus Z87M-PLUS mobo with i5 core 4670K processor
    The best things in life are free, so what are we paying for?
