Re: [OT] Making CPU fans spin [was: Re: Seeking advice...]

This is the first thing to do as soon as I have "my" Debian running on
the "other" machine ;) Is WD40 suitable for such fans?

If you think lubricate the fan to get a better spin I would rather take a fine machine oil, but WD-40. I'm not sure that "fine machine oil" is best translation, it is a fine oil used in precision mechanics, eg for repairing watches.

I think that 1 or 2 drops will be fine, at least worked for me.

(In case someone is wondering, I'm talking about FRU 42W2780 for
Thinkpad R61i type 8198-CJG)
