|For some reason I can't figure out this with lm-sensors.. I have tried using different scripts of fancontrol (path is /etc/init.d/fancontrol) and than running the executable (after doing chmod +x to the file)..|
So i don't know how to set up the script properly but the whole reason I was trying to do this is to slow my CPU fan speed down. I downloaded lm-sensors and get a reading of about 3900 RPM of the CPU fan speed after i type the command 'sensors' into terminal. I don't really care about reading the values though, i just want to slow it down so that it isn't so damn noisy.
This is really easy in XP.. like just download a tool and run it and click a button a few times to slow down the speed. I have read through a bunch of forums too but most people seem to be either fixing in BIOS (which I can't do) or realizing that they can't install lm-sensors on a live CD.
I am using Ubuntu 11.04 and my mobo is asus p5b-e..
This should be a straight forward solution but am pretty new to linux still.
