Fedora Hardware :: Radeon Fan Speed Control In FC13?
Jun 28, 2010
I have a Radeon 3870 (rv670) that seems to work great with fc13 out of the box, with one exception. The stock fan is constantly running full speed. It's too loud. Proprietary drivers don't support fc13 yet. Has anyone found a way to make this work?Edit: The best I could do was switch to ubuntu, install fglrx and then issue the following cli commandCode:aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 15"
I'm fairly new to fedora. I used Fedora 14 on a virtual machine just to mess around with it a little while back but thats about it. As far as linux goes, I just test a bunch but can never seem to pull myself away from windows. I am hoping this is the time but these issues are the weirdest I've seen on any linux distro ever. My GPU (Radeon 5750) is running at 69C idle and the fan is at full speed. I am not overclocking it at all and I'm using the default drivers that came with fedora. It works just fine in windows and a lot cooler. How can I fix this?
I'm running the Gnome 3 desktop version, which I am also getting some graphics artifacts. In the bottom bar I get a dashed white line that comes up every time I boot and goes away when I make the bar expand. Also in the applications window I get the same dashed line at the top of the window and sometimes the top of the scroll bar. So far I really like Gnome 3 (Idk why everyone is whining about it) and I'd like to stick with Fedora, and linux for that matter
I have problem with funs speed in my fujitsu rx100 s6 server, rpm funs is 3000 ? I think it is not standard speed funs. On windows 2008 server funs works quietly. Fujitsu supports only windows servers, red-hat enterp. and suse enterp. Is there any software to control speed fans?
I've installed f11 on my machine and am wondering how to control the fan speed for my graphics card, its a asus EAH4850 (single slot, fan starts automatically at around 10% speed).
The card goes at around 85 degrees Celsius with stardard speed with no 3d, and 110+ when running any 3d application, wich then causes it to not respond. i have to set it to around 60% speed for safe temperature.
I'm used to windows, there i could either use the asus smart doctor or the catalyst control center to adjust fan speed, i'm looking for a linux alternative.
Code: $ su -c 'yum install wine' this forum won't let me put all the text in Transaction Check Error: package openldap-2.4.21-6.fc13.x86_64 (which is newer than openldap-2.4.21-4.fc13.i686) is already installed package nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-19.fc13.x86_64 (which is newer than nss-softokn-freebl-3.12.4-17.fc13.i686) is already installed
I've recently managed to install 11.4 with both Gnome 2.32 and KDE 4.6, moving from 11.3. However, there seems to be a significant speed degradation in terms of opening applications, switching windows, clicking on links etc. I have installed the Radeon graphics drivers from YaST, without much success. IMHO, Gnome seems slightly faster than KDE; however, it's still not great.
My machine worked well with 11.3 and seemed to be going pretty well; however, I wanted new and shiny, so. The PC has an AMD dual-core chip (can't remember the exact spec). Alternatively, is there good benchmarking software I could try to see if I can get an idea of my real speed?
How do I go about changing the fan speed? My laptop is running hotter than normal and although its not melting the case I'd rather turn the fan up to increase cooling if possible. Noise is not a concern as I normally have music playing anyway.
I have a Intel Core 2 Duo 1.86Ghz CPU and I have attached a Zalman heatsink & fan to it for extra cooling. However, the default fan speed is very high and it is too loud and definitely unnecessary. So I use this program in Windows called EasyTune5 (which is for gigabyte motherboards, the brand my motherboard is) and I can set the default speed to zero or 1. There are values between 0 and 100, 100 being full speed of the fan. Setting it to a low value like 0 or 1 makes it very quite. Of course the speed of the fan goes up when the CPU heats up or is being utilized more BUT most of the times during idle, its back to being really quite.
Does ubuntu have any software that can do this? I know there are software to check the cpu temp but i need one to actually control the default fan speed.
I got a new computer and got it running Slackware64-current. It's motherboard is an ASUS M4A88TD-M and it's processor is an AMD Phenom II x4 965. I decided to get some chassis fans to improve it's thermal performance. But, since I started the computer after installing the new fan (only one of the 3 I got) the fan's speed is at max and it's very noisy. I'd like Slackware to control it's speed according to temperatures from lm-sensors. Output of # sensors-detect can be found here. Kernel is stock -current 220.127.116.11. Output of # lspci is here.

I installed Karmic 64-bit on a new Phenom X4 Quad-Core PC. I've replaced the stock CPU cooler with a Cooler Master Hyper TX3, enabled all fan control settings in the BIOS, switched their profiles on silent, enabled the Cool n' Quiet option as well but my CPU fan is still noisy and seem to be running up to the max number of RPM, thus ignoring BIOS specifications. Besides this I can tell there is something wrong with it since even the CPU is on idle or with just the regular browsing, media player operations, PC sometimes freezes or is automatically rebooted .
I installed lm-sensors and went through all the sensors-detect operations (output attached to this post) but it doesn't show anything else but the CPU and HDD temperature which is always 40 Celsius degrees.
Just installed the latest ubuntu on my PC. When I was running windows I had a tool called asus smartdoctor which allowed me to vary my video card fan speed. I really need to increase this fan speed as my video card overheats. Is there a unbuntu compatable program that would allow me to change the fan speed or do I need to install Wine and run smart doctor that way?
I'm trying to control the fan speed on my laptop (IBM Thinkpad T43.) I used lsmod and saw that the thinkpad_acpi module was already load, but I know I need the fan_control=1 option so I did this:
$modprobe thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1. Then I did: $echo level 7 > /proc/acpi/ibm/fan and I get an error: write error: Invalid argument
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here, Also, if I wanted to load the module thinkpad_acpi at boot time with the fan_control=1 option, should I add it to /etc/rc.modules? In other words, does the rc.modules file override udev? And do I need to remove the module before reloading it with the fan_control=1 option?
I really need some control over my fan speed, as it seems by laptop is running rather hot.
how to control the speed of the fan in my laptop ? i use ubuntu ...i don't seem to use it to full power and it is always cool .. it makes lots of noise.i don't know what to say for commands i've run . i tried lm-sensors but it says command not found. sensors gives me some output and "temp1" which say +69degrees maximum 89 ..i used the search function but it just gave me some unsolved threads.
I'm running openSUSE 11.4 with GNOME. I have an EVGA nvidia GTX 285 installed, which is equipped with a variable speed fan. I'm running the nvidia driver package which includes the nvidia X Server Settings utility. The utility allows me to view the fan speed as a percentage of its maximum speed but does not allow adjustment. It appears that the speed remains at the card default of 40% regardless of GPU or card temp. When running certain graphic-intensive applications my card runs quite hot (sometimes >70 degrees C). Although this isn't hot enough to burn the card up in the short term, it is certainly hot enough to shorten my video card's lifespan.
So, the question is how do I set up my system so I can increase the fan speed to 50% or better yet, get it to increase as the GPU temp increases? The nvidia X Server Settings help indicates that fan speed is adjustable after enabling coolbits, but coolbits is not installed on my system and is not available from the default repositories. What is the easiest way to obtain, install and enable coolbits? I have no intention of overclocking my card. It was too expensive to risk damage to the card.
I often run my ubuntu as SSH server only so i stop GDM when i do that, but i found out that after i stop gnome, my ATI gpu fans spins up like crazy and sounds like a jet plane, (i have ati closed source driver installed) i am worried to leave the fan on like that, so i have to start a X session again. Then the fan slows down I would like to be able to have slow fan speed when i drop to text mode only, one is its light weight, two is for security
Last nights upgrade of java-1.6.0-openjdk-18.104.22.168-22.214.171.124.fc13.i686 and java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin-126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52.fc13.i686 prevent the loading of Ameritrades Command Center.Downgrading to version 184.108.40.206-37 fixes the problem. I'll post the bugzilla number as soon as I get the chance to file it.
I feel little silly asking this, I accidently removed from my gnome panel my internet connection, volume control and battery indicator on F11. how can I add this back. It does not show up in the add to panel menu and the applications do not give you back the default feel.
Fedora (220.127.116.11-47.fc13.x86_64) I installed that update, during the installation process it said that it had to remove three packages, one of them was kmod nvidia for the old kernel (Fedora (18.104.22.168-149.fc13.x86_64))After the update finished installing the new kernel, I restarted the system and Nvidia did not load. (I assume because Update manager removed the old nvidia? But I also assumed that a new version would be installed automatically?)I received the following Boot messages:
Entering non-interactive startup Starting monitoring for VG vg_user1: 3 logical volume(s) in volume group "vg_user1" monitored
I'm confused, if Update Manager removed kmod nvidia, then why does yum say it is installed? And why doesn't the new kernel update work with that version? Or should I install a driver version for that particular kernel? I've read while searching that I need to install a kmod-nvidia for that particual kernel version and that I should login to my previous kernel until that happens, is that the problem I'm having?
Why don't rpmfusion and fedoraproject release the kmod-nvidia and kernel updates at the same time to avoid problems such as this? Does anyone know how long does it usually take for rpmfusion to release the new kmod-nvidia driver for the latest kernel?
I just installed FC13.It wiped out everything from the previous (FC11) installation. I cannot connect to the existing windows network that was working before. I don't see SAMBA so I downloaded and installed the RPM. I still don't see it on any of the menus. I am trying to connect to the existing Windows network
I have been running FC13 for some time now without any problems on my HP dc5800 Microtower. Recently I ran a software update, and when I rebooted the machine I got a blank screen with only a blinking underscore in the upper-left corner. Rebooted several times to no avail. I thought perhaps I had made a mistake, so I just reinstalled. I have tried reinstalling several times now with both 32-bit and 64-bit FC13, each time with the same result: everything works fine up until I install software updates; then after the next reboot I get a blank screen with the blinking underscore. I see the POST screen, and then it just goes blank. It doesn't seem to respond to any keyboard/mouse input; I eventually have to hold down the power button to make it power off.
I am trying to setup VNC server on FC13 box. i am not able to do proper configuration. Can anone point to me a good link which is working. I did many configurations. but no success yet. I have an issue especially with xstartup script. I am running VNC server on Linux and RealVNC viewer on Win Vista OS.When i try to connect to VNC server from RealVNC viewer from Win Vista. It gives error like "unable to connect to host: Connection timed out (10060)"
