When running Linux Puppy on my previous Thinkpad, an X31, I used a script (found here: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Talk:Problem_with_fan_noise) at startup to control what temperature the CPU fan comes on at. The script begins with:
IBM_ACPI=/proc/acpi/ibm THERMOMETER=$IBM_ACPI/thermal FAN=$IBM_ACPI/fan MAXTRIPPOINT=65 MINTRIPPOINT=60 TRIPPOINT=$MINTRIPPOINT
On my current Thinkpad, an X230, although the file "/proc/acpi/ibm/fan" exists, "/proc/acpi/ibm/thermal" does not, which seems to be why the script doesn't work on this laptop.
Is there any way I could adjust this script so it would work on my X230?
Thanks for any help.
