Re: iBook 800Mhz G3 fan on a lot

Many thanks for testing. 
Ben : how much happy testers are enough to have the module 
included the kernel ?

This around your harddisk

This is mainly your CPU temperature. G3 900 seems to be a bit hotter
than 800. No surprise...

What is the MODULE_* macro to avoid this warning ?

The value shown here are read from the chip. This seems to be the chip
default values on all ibooks. 

This globally mean that the fan will not start to cool the cpu until it
reaches 68 degrees. And will not run full speed before 78 degrees. Does
anyone know if the G3 can bear such temperatures ?

I personnally make it start at 52 degrees...
