I compiled and tested the driver.
Here is the kernel log at startup :
Dec 15 23:07:46 xxxx kernel: [82199.773523] f71882fg: Found f8000 chip
at 0xa00, revision 41
Dec 15 23:07:46 xxxx kernel: [82199.773742] f71882fg f71882fg.2560:
Fan: 1 is in duty-cycle mode
Dec 15 23:07:46 xxxx kernel: [82199.773745] f71882fg f71882fg.2560:
Fan: 2 is in duty-cycle mode
Dec 15 23:07:46 xxxx kernel: [82199.773748] f71882fg f71882fg.2560:
Fan: 3 is in duty-cycle mode
Here is the "sensors" (sensors version 3.0.2 with libsensors version
3.0.2) output :
Adapter: ISA adapter
in0: +1.68 V
in1: +1.67 V
in2: +1.64 V
fan1: 1486 RPM
fan2: 894 RPM
fan3: 0 RPM ALARM
fan4: 34464 RPM
temp1: +46.0°C (high = +70.0°C, hyst = +60.0°C)
temp2: +41.0°C (high = +100.0°C, hyst = +85.0°C) sensor = Intel PECI
temp3: +40.0°C (high = +100.0°C, hyst = +85.0°C)
There are only two fans on my computer.
"fan3: 0 RPM ALARM " seems alright as there is no fan.
"fan4: 34464 RPM" is a bit strange
Voltage indication seems to be divided by two. I guess sensors3.conf
should be modified for f8000 chip.
