Question ACPI: 2.6.17.7; nothing in /proc/acpi/fan; fans not running; problem not seen before.


Yesterday I downloaded and compiled a new 2.6.17.7 kernel from kernel.org. I have been doing this since I switched to Slackware (10.2/current) almost 4 months ago. My computer is a Dell Inspiron 8200 laptop (1.7GHz Intel P4), 256MB RAM, 40GB ATA-HDD. With the exception of the few "practice kernels" I blew through in a few days, I have been very successful in compiling kernels with virtually no problems at all... until this time.

For example, each time I've compiled a kernel that I've used regularly (starting with 2.6.16.16) my cooling fans have been activating normally. I've never had a problem with this sort of "normal PC operation."

Now my cooling fans do not run. To the best of my knowledge this is the only problem I have right now. I have tried to diagnose the problem but I have to admit that I'm at a loss. I suppose that I could revert to an earlier kernel, but that's not much of a challenge right now. Plus I'd hope that someone else could learn from it.

I compiled the kernel normally and everything is set up properly. I have ndiswrapper 1.21 for the wireless card and the NVIDIA display drivers added in to the modules. Everything else is supplied by the kernel modules at compile-time.

I only made one change to the kernel configuration. I was hoping to check out this CPU frequency scaling thing and possibly use it. With the exception of CONFIG_X86_CPUID and CONFIG_SPLIT_PTLOCK_CPUS this is the only thing that has changed:
Code:
root@yogi:~# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep CPU
CONFIG_X86_CPUID=m
CONFIG_SPLIT_PTLOCK_CPUS=4
# CPU Frequency scaling
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ=y
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_TABLE=m
# CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEBUG is not set
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_STAT=m
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_STAT_DETAILS=y
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_PERFORMANCE=y
# CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_DEFAULT_GOV_USERSPACE is not set
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_PERFORMANCE=y
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_POWERSAVE=m
CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_USERSPACE=m
# CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_ONDEMAND is not set
# CONFIG_CPU_FREQ_GOV_CONSERVATIVE is not set
# CPUFreq processor drivers
# CONFIG_X86_ACPI_CPUFREQ is not set
# CONFIG_X86_CPUFREQ_NFORCE2 is not set
I left everything else alone in the config... as it was the old config and it was working perfectly. ACPI and I2C have always been in the config and is right now:
Code:
root@yogi:~# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep ACPI
# Power management options (ACPI, APM)

With that being said... ACPI does not list any fans and the fans do not function.
Code:
root@yogi:~# ls /proc/acpi/fan

Here is some more information that will hopefully be helpful:

There are exceptions and errors that I haven't seen before. Any ideas?

I have looked around for this problem and cannot find anything that matches my scenario. I was hoping that maybe someone with a better knowledge of this can offer some help. If I have to revert back to an older kernel I will but I just don't think that adding CPU frequency scaling will take my fans away. I'm up to the challenge.

So I've been rustling with this problem all day and I have more information to add.

I recompiled the new kernel without CPU frequency scaling support and there still isn't anything in acpi/fan. I read somewhere that even though I have and use ACPI on the computer that the fans will work if acpi doesn't recognize them.

Well that's all well and good but my laptop is running awfully hot. Besides that, if the fans do work then I'm not noticing them... IE they work for shorter period of time and activate less frequently.

Does anyone know what is going on?
