having just learned about acpi and passing values into /proc files by doing:
echo brightness: 5 > /proc/acpi/toshiba/lcd
i can now finally change the brightness of my toshiba lcd.
my question is, i now want to shut down/control the fan by doing:
echo running: 0 > /proc/acpi/toshiba/fan
but this does not seem to shut down and fan. the fan on my laptop seem to run constently, is there a way to find out if its functioning normaly?
