I'm using an ASUS eeebox 1033, which is intended as a HTPC, and thus needs to be quite. I've tried to use lm-config and fancontrol packages. When I check for sensors, all I see is two temperature (CPU and GPU?), but nothing else.

xbmc@xbmc-EB1033:/etc$ sensors coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Core 0: +37.0°C (crit = +100.0°C) Core 1: +32.0°C (crit = +100.0°C)

and if I try to use pwmconfig, all I get is the following message:

xbmc@xbmc-EB1033:/etc$ sudo pwmconfig

# pwmconfig revision 5857 (2010-08-22)

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.

/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

Furthermore, I've tried to follow the posts here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=42737 but got stuck, since the pwmconfig-file does not look like anything I have on my computer.

I'm using a fresh install of ubuntu 12.10
