Is your machine a sibling of Inspiron 8200?
Perhaps you may not waste your time by attempting Fan control through
ACPI, and do:
- ask your make to provide the equivalent for "Dell-laptop driver" on
Linux, but it will not happen so easily...
- write a small driver of your own which directly uses SMBus for Fan
control, but again only limited information for Fan control is supplied,
Does anyone know if "lm_sensors" stuff works for roychris?
Is it just for monitoring purpose only? Or am I completely off base?
