I can hear the fan spinning when there is a lot of cpu activity; but

There is any method to control the fan or at least to force the fan to
maximum speed?
My fan works fine by itself now (Thinkpad X31), but I recall needing to use the command
echo 3 > /proc/acpi/[SOMEPATH]/fan
Please can you send the content of your fan directory?
what he described is a thinkpad feature, the "native" fan acpi interface is
mostly broken, or not supported by the bios.

Like someone suggested already, look for the toshiba tools packages in

Well, I tried the toshiba tools but this is the output I receive:
msb01:/usr/src# toshset -fan on
required kernel toshiba support not enabled.

So it seems that I have to recompile the kernel with CONFIG_ACPI and
CONFIG_ACPI_TOSHIBA flags enabled.

Anyone knows if there ere stock debial kernel with these flags enabled?


That's interesting. "apt-cache show toshset" says it doesn't rely on kernel support.
