Hi,

Thanks for making and sharing this very nice distro.
It seems that on my PC, SMS will not lower the CPU fan speed.
At boot, the PC will start with the fans on maximum speed and then, when the OS loads, the speed is lowered.
This is not happening when booting SMS.

I looked into CPUFREQUTILS and ran it from the CLI, that did change the CPU frequency but the fan speed was not lowered.
Is there a way to make SMS lower the fan speed, just like other OS's?
Like Linux Mint, other Debian's and Win 7 and 10.

I hope this can be done, because I like this Linux quite a bit and I am thinking to use it as a desktop OS. Since many now use systemd, I took refuge with Slackware and SMS is a nice, complete package, so I am giving this a try.

Thanks in advance for any replies,
Have a nice day.

Hi,

you can try lm_sensors run
sensors-detect

and follow instructions


There is also available "fancontrol"

Is "coretemp" module loaded?
lsmod|grep coretemp

Hi, and thanks for the fast reply. (I was not so fast, sorry.)

I ran sensors-detect and it ended saying:

Copy prog/init/lm_sensors.init to /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
for initialization at boot time.
You should now start the lm_sensors service to load the required
kernel modules.

so I went and typed:
root@sms:/# cp prog/init/lm_sensors.init /etc/init.d/lm_sensors
cp: cannot stat ‘prog/init/lm_sensors.init’: No such file or directory

When I ran it again it said:
Do you want to overwrite /etc/sysconfig/lm_sensors? (YES/no):
So, I see where that file is, but I do not know where to copy it now, can it go into
/etc/init.d/lm_sensors
?
Will that make it run on startup?

Then, I ran the other 2 that you mentioned:
root@sms:/# lsmod|grep coretemp
coretemp 6972 0
hwmon 4263 2 dell_smm_hwmon,coretemp
(It is on a DELL with an Intel mobo.)
root@sms:/#
root@sms:/# fancontrol
Loading configuration from /etc/fancontrol ...
Error: Can't read configuration file
root@sms:/#
(I have a freshly installed SMS64.Native.CD-2.0.9-Install)

And I see I should change the font-code, because mc is showing weird characters.
Can you please tell me what to run for that?
I would like to get to know more about Slackware (I have been using Debian-and derived linux) what could you recommend for that?

Thanks in advance.

you can run it from there
/etc/init.d/lm_sensors
like
Code:
/etc/init.d/lm_sensors  star
t

or copy it to /etc/rc.d/
Code:
copy /etc/init.d/lm_sensors  /etc/rc.d/rc.lm_sensors

and run it like
/etc/rc.d/rc.lm_sensors start

for fonts do

Code:
setconsolefont $*
