Version 1.44 works on kernel 5.19 (laptop Dell Inspiron 13 5378 and kernel 5.19.12-zen1-1-zen in my case). You can get it here:

On Kernel 5.18 this does not work anymore since the i8k proc interface (which was deprecated) was removed from the arch kernel. So currently it does not work using the latest kernel, need to keep using a kernel <5.18

I just want to point out that the included i8kmon.service is not the one installed by the PKGBUILD.

I'm using dell-bios-fan-control in addition to disable BIOS fan control.

Must do:

/etc/modprobe.d/i8k.conf ->editor input-> options i8k force=1

In /etc/modules-load.d/i8k.conf ->editor input-> i8k

Then i8kutils fan control service starts at boot.

Would be great if this is done when installing.

Else must do a >>> sudo modprobe i8k force=1 <<< every reboot to work: systemctl status i8kmon

How to autostart this properly on Manjaro XFCE?

Please add acpi to dependencies, without it this app crashes.

please install pkg data to /usr/lib instead of /etc. Etc is for local overrides.

Corrected install dir of dell-smm-hwmon.conf.

fungible commented on 2017-06-15 23:12 (UTC)

dell-smm-hwmon.conf is in the wrong directory. It should be in /etc/modprobe.d instead of /etc/modules-load.d
