Want to control my fan speed. Tried
pwmconfig but didn’t work.
I get this
hwmon1/pwm3 is currently setup for automatic speed control
This one (hwmon1/pwm3) is my noise maker. Need it in manual mode, and also at the end of
pwmconfig,configuration option is missing, I mean out of 5 option, I get only 4, also it seems /etc/fancontrol is emty.
sudo pwmconfig [sudo] password for seebox: # pwmconfig version 3.6.0 This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm) controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm. We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls. The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you physically verify that the fans have been to full speed after the program has completed. Found the following devices: hwmon0 is coretemp hwmon1 is it8718 Found the following PWM controls: hwmon1/pwm1 current value: 254 hwmon1/pwm2 current value: 254 hwmon1/pwm3 current value: 254 hwmon1/pwm3 is currently setup for automatic speed control. In general, automatic mode is preferred over manual mode, as it is more efficient and it reacts faster. Are you sure that you want to setup this output for manual control? (n) yes Giving the fans some time to reach full speed... Found the following fan sensors: hwmon1/fan1_input current speed: 4218 RPM hwmon1/fan2_input current speed: 0 ... skipping! Warning!!! This program will stop your fans, one at a time, for approximately 5 seconds each!!! This may cause your processor temperature to rise!!! If you do not want to do this hit control-C now!!!

Please verify that all fans have returned to their normal speed. The fancontrol script can automatically respond to temperature changes of your system by changing fanspeeds.
