Description Raoul Thill 2007-12-24 10:03:30 EST
Description of problem:
When booting my Fedora 8 with the latest updated kernel 2.6.23.9-85.fc8 one of
my fan's is running at maximum speed when X (gdm) is starting up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.6.23.9-85.fc8

How reproducible:
This problem is reproducible every time I start my PC.

Additional info:
My hardware components may be found in the SMOLT database:
http://smolt.fedoraproject.org/show_all?UUID=c8dbb9d3-a9bd-4ba6-b92e-4a294ba5a95f

and attached you can find a sos-report file generated when running the kernel
before: 2.6.23.8-63.fc8 where my fan speeds are OK.

I remove the Security keyword, as I do not believe this has security implications.
Comment 3 Kasper Dupont 2008-01-05 03:37:43 EST
I wonder if 426699 and 426771 might be duplicates of 407751

Is the system BIOS up-to-date?

And please attach the contents of /var/log/dmesg from the new kernel.

Is it only during startup or does it keep running at maximum speed after X startup?
Comment 8 Raoul Thill 2008-01-19 09:49:57 EST
It is after system boot, when X or gdm has started and it keeps running until
shutdown.
Comment 9 Chuck Ebbert 2008-01-24 18:48:44 EST
Does disabling the hwmon drivers make any difference?
Comment 10 Chuck Ebbert 2008-01-24 18:57:07 EST
Hmm, you have W83627DHG monitoring chip, can you please try the 2.6.23.14-107
kernel update?
Comment 11 Raoul Thill 2008-01-26 09:55:10 EST
1. Update to kernel 2.6.23.14-107.fc8 --> no change
2. Test disabling hwmon, hwmon_vid, coretemp and W83627DHG drivers --> no change

Attaching new dmesg output from 2.6.23.14-107.fc8 kernel.

Comment 13 Raoul Thill 2008-01-26 09:57:57 EST
Is there a way to get to know what fan is running on maximum speed (/proc?) or a
way to set the speed by a command?
Comment 14 Raoul Thill 2008-01-26 11:19:40 EST
The fan running at maximum speed is the fan from the nvidia 8800GTS board. This
is not a kernel bug!!
The error is related to the nvidia driver, which has been installed during
kernel update. Sorry guys.

There is a bug report in the livna bugzilla about this error:
