I've installed amd64 Intrepid on a Dell PowerEdge 2800. Everything seems to work, but the fans run at full speed all the time. Has anyone else ran into this? Is there a fix? I've looked through the forums here, but I haven't found anything.

Thanks!

I use i8k in synaptic to manually control the fans on my dell inspiron 4100.

This is supposedly for newer Dell laptops.

It looks like this is only for laptops, not servers. Has anyone put this on a server?

Everything that I look at is either for laptops or 32-bit only. I tried dellfand, but it shows that I don't have any temperature sensors. This seems to agree with what I see under acpi/thermal.
