acpi & fan control
I run debian testing on a Packard Bell igo 5561 SK and my comp is getting really hot after some time. I'm afraid it to burn, so i have to switch it of every 4 hours.
I noticed a very slow fan activity : my fan works some seconds every minute. However, it seems its activity is not connected with heat but with CPU activity : when compiling code or opening heavy application, the fan runs fine.
I installed ACPID et ACPI & i'd like to force fan to run more.
/proc/acpi/fan is empty
/proc/acpi/thermal is empty
lsmod returns that these modules are loaded (among others):
thermal, processor, battery, fan, ac, lp, ds
I actually use the actual debian 2.6.8-2 kernel for K7
I don't know any tools or command for acpi config and to force this damn lazzy fan. Guess, the fact that fan and the directories fan & thermal onto /proc/acp are empty is not a good sign...
Well, any advice for cooling down this machine without ice cubes could be great!
