Good idea, done.

What do you think about to compile the package with the new option to read aout the s.m.a.r.t-temperatures directly?

The NEWS tells:
1) S.M.A.R.T via libatasmart
----------------------------
Thinkfan can now read temperatures directly from hard disks via libatasmart.
To enable it, you need to compile with -DUSE_ATASMART.

Done, thx for the hint @cap_sensitive.

Hi, I think the thinkpad_acpi.conf should better be placed under /usr/lib/modprobe.d

notizblock commented on 2014-01-02 09:13

I've uploaded a new version with the following changes:
- Remove initscripts support
- Provide a install file with a note regarding creating a thinkfan.conf
- Install thinkpad_acpi.conf in /etc/modprobe.d

NOTE: You might get a conflict for '/etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf'. Please remove the file before installing/uprading. The content of the installed config file is:
options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1

Hi, thx for your comments.

[1] is fine, I'll include that later.

[2] is a bit dangerous, as sensor data/thermal control my differ for several devices. In my oppinion, it may be sufficient to show a note when installing the package.

[new version], yes I'm aware of it, but it is not yet marked as stable.

What do you think about including following two files with the package?

[1]
/etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf
options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1
https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Lenovo_ThinkPad_T420#Fans

[2]
And the simple config file included in examples folder thinkfan.conf.simple as /etc/thinkfan.conf

Fedora includes both of these files. Also version 0.9 beta2 is available.

I've got a bit of an issue with this one. Here's my thinkfan.conf for the moment: http://ix.io/9bP

I've been testing it now, and it doesn't seem to be reacting to my HDD (the one I've added 25 to). My HDD temp is at 42 degrees C right now, but my fan speed is 0 RPM. The fan eventually reacts if I watch a video or do something else that makes the other temperatures rise, but it's almost as if the HDD is in some kind of blindspot. It's a T400 if that matters.

You should remove old initscripts support.
