tlp is not on my system. Im running Lubuntu

Okt 31 13:52:30 Guilmon thermald[743]: error: could not parse file /etc/thermald/thermal-conf.xml

I was searching around and found thermald configuration file for Thinkpad T430

After restart of thermald.service, I get following error.

thermald[6496]: sysfs write failed /sys/devices/virtual/powercap/intel-rapl/intel-rapl:0/enabled


ls -al /sys/devices/virtual/powercap/intel-rapl/enabled 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 4096 Okt 31 19:30 /sys/devices/virtual/powercap/intel-rapl/enabled

The problem is, I have to stop thermald before I poweroff the system.

 dpkg -l| grep sensor

Can't have tabs in the .xml file. <ThermalSensor> has two tabs in front of it. Use the following corrected /etc/thermald/thermal-conf.xml file...

  • Zhanks @heuynnema I draw thermald from git. – nobody Nov 3 at 11:01
  • @nobody I know that you got the .xml file from git. Did you try my .xml file? – heynnema Nov 3 at 12:30
  • sorry @heuynnema I had to make a new install. and make it short and painless sudo apt purge thermald – nobody Nov 4 at 18:01
  • @nobody did you end up reinstalling thermald, or just give up? Did you try my .xml file first? – heynnema Nov 4 at 18:03
  • @heymenna, I have do reinstall the whole os, because I format it instead of bionic. :( – nobody Nov 4 at 18:06
