With pacman-git, the problem doesn’t occur on my system, so it seems to be fixed on the master branch.

@xiliyi I noticed that. As this package only tracks official releases though, I will wait for the new version. In the meantime, you can help test the fix using the thinkfan-git package, which pulls from the git master branch.

The developer responded to the issue on github.

@helirexi and anyone else having the 100% CPU issue: please see the GitHub issue referenced below and provide the software maintainer with any relevant info in order to help him fix it. I am not involved with the development of this software, I just packaged the latest version that they released.

I was faced same problem, eat 100% of one core, and rise temp up to 70C. Just downgrade to 0.9.3 version "solved" this issue. my arch all up-to-date. Now just add this package to Ignored in pacman. I have Lenovo Thinkpad T61 if this help.

@xiliyi Thanks for letting me know. The owner of the project has completely rewritten the software and it seems that certain systems are having problems with the new implementation. I don't believe it is a packaging issue, but if you find a problem with the PKGBUILD please let me know and I will fix it ASAP.

@dude I believe I’m facing the same problem as @nfishr. Changing the line and rebuilding as suggested here ( did not resolve the issue, CPU load is still at 100% (although this hits only one core, with or without the changed source).

@nfishr It's very simple, there's only a single line of code that needs to be changed. Check the wiki if you don't know how to build packages manually.

@dude I was able to get rid of the log-warning by adding values to the thinkfan.conf, but the CPU-Load is still 100%. That issue from Github looks interesting, although I'm not sure how I would go about implementing it. Thanks though
