Utility to control the fan speed
  8 reviews

Lm-sensors is a hardware health monitoring package for Linux. It allows you to access information from temperature, voltage, and fan speed sensors. It works with most newer systems.

This package contains a daemon that calculates fan speeds from temperatures and sets the corresponding PWM outputs to the computed values. This is useful when this feature is not provided by the BIOS or ACPI, which should normally be the case on a laptop.

It gives nothing as fan on AMD A8 7600 Kaveri as this fan sensor is in the bios

LM 19.1 Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ... Error: Can't read configuration file (Same with or without sudo). The sensors command works just exactly the same as without fancontrol.

Just installed in LM19.1. I can get the core temps with $> sensors, but that's it. No control, so a bit of a waste of time. Really need to calm these fans down on a new Dell XPS 15.
