- Greetings to all helpful Ubuntu Gurus -
i'm using a VAIO VPC EB100C Laptop with an Ubuntu 11.10 OS running on it [64bit] and i'm having grave issues with my fan - it runs non stop.
I doubt that it is normal for my fan to run at full speed for just booting my system and fancying my desktop background without doing anything else...
The VAIO fan support was a huge letdown as my series wasn't supported - i tried to configurate the fan intervals - followed a tutorial on fancontrol, installed lm-sensors and tried pwmconfig which gave me the:
" /usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed " error.
I looked into similar threads, tutorials and manuals without luck - I'm not even sure if the underlying problem isn't the fan control at all but a performance issue but then again why would i need so much CPU for nothing ? [50°C while doing nothing]
I found out that there's little to no VAIO/Ubuntu Support at all and would be glad for any help availale; I'd appreciate a silent working atmosphere while browsing - Thanks in advance
