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.
