Can you help me with finding all the hardware information (parameters) and configuration files about the fan in my laptop?
I'm interested of the fan's parameters and configuration files that I can edit and change those parameters to have the most possible control over the fan. I used
sudo lshw | grep fan and it didn't find it.
I remember the sentence "Everything in Unix is a file" so there should be files with the information I'm looking for and commands that are able to extract the information from those files.
Linux kernel communicate with the hardware, so part of the information could be pulled out from there?
Here is the link to sensors-detect output ending with error message.
$ dmesg | grep fan [ 0.281316] fan PNP0C0B:00: registered as cooling_device0 [ 0.281534] fan PNP0C0B:01: registered as cooling_device1
/proc/acpi there is a lot of information. What are the fan parameters I can control (state, speed, scheduling)? And where are the files that I can edit the fan parameters?
