Bug#649253: eeepc-wmi does not seem to adjust fan speed, but prevents use of fancontrol
I tried the latest kernel from experimental, but as expected, there is no
difference. Same as with the other kernels.
For those, who are interested, I advise not to use eeepc-wmi, as doing so, the
fan will NOT speed up, even when the cpu is getting hot. To say correct: It is
speeding up, but only a very little bit! You may overheat your cpu.
I reverted back to the "acpi-osi="Linux"-workaround, which is working very
well on this computer.
Ben, I think, you understand the situation, as we talked about it some time
ago. I might remember, that you also told me, that the hardware of this
computer is not documented and so developing might be impossible.
I doubt, that many people are using an EEEPC 1005HGO with linux, most people
are having a better machine (with N280 cpu or better) and the newer API.
In my case I can use the workaround, and doing development for a single person
is really(!) too much of a good thing!
So it is ok for me, when this bug may be closed.
Otherwise I will be pleased, when I can help with some testing.
Thank you very much for your time and help!
