On 12/12/03 Jim Cornette did say:

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/*

gives the below output for my machine.

cooling mode: active
<polling disabled>
state: ok
temperature: 44 C
critical (S5): 100 C
passive: 97 C: tc1=4 tc2=3 tsp=40 devices=0xcf6b6d80

My cooling mode didn't show as active, and the laptop got up to 59 C and seems to keep rising. Is there a way to tell it to start cooling?


I'm past my area of knowledge on this problem also. I remember people usig echo and set to activate and deactivate devices by changig the logic level.

lsmod had these consecutive modules related to acpi and temperature in my setup. I have ac and battery loaded in the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.

I hope that you get the fan to start cutting on to cool as needed. It works great for me. But I did little to get it functioning properly. The kernel developers did the heavy lifting with initscripts and other needed utilities.

Did you check bugzilla for similar problems with cooling?
