I'm new to that list, so thank you for reading this.
I have an ASUS A3843GLP driving with a 2.9.11 kernel. I patched the=20
kernel as mentioned on http://acpi.sourceforge.net/download.html
- fan almost always running on lowest level
- speed step control fails when using kpowerd (no speed step, CPU runs=20
on 1700 MHz all the time, but acpi -V reports that the CPU runs on 50%)
- writing different temperature levels to the thermalzone is accepted=20
but ignored. Fan still runs even if temperature of CPU is below 50=B0C
For testing I installed Windows and got the fan deactivated using=20
SpeedswitchXP (Power4Gear didn't make it for me). Since I had no=20
experience with ASUS notenooks I now know that it is possible to=20
throttle down the CPU to 600 MHz and having the fan NOT working. So, is=20
there a way to configure acpi that this is also possible with Linux?
thanx for help,
