I recently install Ubuntu 9.0.4 on a Presario S4000NX and the CPU fan speed is kept at max. With Windows XP installed the fan speed would increase/decrease as required.
I've tried to install lm-sensors and run the sensors-detect. It recommended that I load the modules which I did:
When running sensor-detect it gave me this strange message:
Trying family SMSC Found SMSC LPC47M15x/192/997 Super IO Fan Sensors (but not activated)
Running the sensors command gives me a list of voltages and CPU and temperature but doesn't list any fans.
After doing some Internet research I then tried to load the smsc47m1 module but I get the following error:
FATAL: Error inserting smsc47m1 (/lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/kernel/drivers/hwmon/smsc47m1.ko): no such device
The file smsc47m1.ko does exist in the listed folder.
Any suggestions for getting the fan speed (and the noise) down in Ubuntu? Thanx.
P.S. - I would have put better tags but Server Fault wouldn't let me.
