I am having trouble with my fan on my Lenovo thinkpad laptop. I have installed lm-sensors and ran sensors-detect and also added option fan_control=1 as a module parameter. The issue is two-fold.
First, I don't think my fan is detected at all. The reasons:
sensorsgives the following output:
acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +29.8°C (crit = +100.0°C) coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +41.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +41.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +38.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) thinkpad-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter fan1: 0 RPM pkg-temp-0-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +41.0°C
As you can see fan1 = 0 RPM (this never changes)
cat /proc/acpi/ibm/fangives the following output:
status: enabled speed: 0 level: auto commands: level <level> (<level> is 0-7, auto, disengaged, full-speed) commands: enable, disable commands: watchdog <timeout> (<timeout> is 0 (off), 1-120 (seconds))
"Speed" is always 0.
- trying to manually change the level of /proc/acpi/ibm/fan does not have any effect. Level 0 and Level 7 are basically the same.
Secondly, if I assume that my fan is detected (and control works), there is the problem that once it starts running - it never stops (even when temps are low). I tried installing thinkfan, controlfan and other apps, but it still doesn't change anything.
I would like to point out that I have a hybrid GPU system, but I am using bumbleebe, so I only use the nvidia card when I run
Any help will be appreciated!
