Thank you Florian. I just upgraded for 3.2.1 kernel. I have enabled few modules: Under drivers/hwmon: acpi_power_meter.ko asb100.ko asus_atk0110.ko atxp1.ko coretemp.ko hwmon-vid.ko Under drivers/acpi: ac.ko battery.ko button.ko container.ko fan.ko processor.ko thermal.ko video.ko I loaded them all for now, and still /proc/acpi/fan is not there. sensor-detect generated the following file (comments removed): ============================================================ # Load modules at startup LOADMODULES=yes # Initialize sensors at startup INITSENSORS=yes HWMON_MODULES="coretemp" # You should use BUS_MODULES and HWMON_MODULES instead if possible. MODULE_0=coretemp ============================================================ The loaded models (sorted): Module Size Used by ac 3081 0 acpi_power_meter 8042 0 aes_generic 26002 1 aes_x86_64 aes_x86_64 7340 1 arc4 1274 2 asb100 11196 0 asus_atk0110 7142 0 atxp1 3120 0 backlight 3744 1 video battery 10723 0 button 4247 1 i915 cfg80211 140836 2 iwlwifi,mac80211 container 2293 0 coretemp 5118 0 dm_mod 57890 0 drm 154194 3 i915,drm_kms_helper drm_kms_helper 21576 1 i915 ehci_hcd 32610 0 fan 2274 0 genrtc 3463 0 hwmon_vid 2004 2 atxp1,asb100 i2c_algo_bit 4448 1 i915 i2c_core 16207 7 i915,drm_kms_helper,drm,i2c_algo_bit,atxp1,asb100,i2c_i801 i2c_i801 7262 0 i915 299348 2 intel_agp 10320 1 i915 intel_gtt 11801 3 i915,intel_agp iwlwifi 164481 0 joydev 8615 0 mac80211 160533 1 iwlwifi pcspkr 1699 0 processor 18963 0 rfkill 13268 1 cfg80211 sg 21044 0 snd 47299 7 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_hwdep,snd_pcm,snd_timer snd_hda_codec 57215 3 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_codec_realtek,snd_hda_intel snd_hda_codec_hdmi 21200 1 snd_hda_codec_realtek 181014 1 snd_hda_intel 19808 0 snd_hwdep 5046 1 snd_hda_codec snd_page_alloc 5977 2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm snd_pcm 56377 3 snd_hda_codec_hdmi,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec snd_timer 15481 1 snd_pcm thermal 7658 0 usb_common 850 1 usbcore usbcore 121446 2 ehci_hcd video 10959 1 i915 As you can see, coretemp is loaded. I read on some forums that you can manually control the fan speed. I will start some extensive process, to see if the fan will kick.
