I think "lm-sensors" includes a "fancontrol" package, but be careful if you want to manually set the fan speed, because this parameter should be automatically adjusted by ACPI and cpufreqd.

Ideally, running "acpi -V" will display more info about your thermal zones and current temperature trip points.

lm-sensors does not work on this laptop, 'sensors-detect' does not detect any sensors.

'acpi -v' reads;
Battery 0: Charging, 0%, charging at zero rate - will never fully charge., design capacity 4400 mAh
  AC Adapter 0: on-line
     Thermal 0: ok, 53.0 degrees C
     Thermal 1: ok, 69.0 degrees C
     Cooling 0: Processor 1 of 7

But I notice that /etc/rc2.d has 'S20fancontrol', I wonder what that does. I would just like to turn the fan on, since I never hear it.
