WRT1900AC V1 - Fan always on

Post by Panch1to »

Hello all,

Been using version 1.12.0 for a few days and I like it a lot, but I noticed that the Fan is always on, it seems that the fan control never actually executed, at least I do not see it when I run crontab -l

root@BBOX:/tmp# crontab -l
0,1,11,21,31,41,51 * * * * /usr/bin/set_kernel_timezone >/dev/null 2>&1
0 0,4,8,12,16,20 * * * /usr/bin/backup_quotas >/dev/null 2>&1
0 0,4,8,12,16,20 * * * /tmp/bw_backup/do_bw_backup
0 0,4,8,12,16,20 * * * /tmp/do_webmon_backup

I found several references to a custom script from lantisproject but the scrip is no longer available at that web page, is there something else I can do to enable fan control?

Here's how to do it: https://forum.openwrt.org/t/automatic-f ... 1900ac/223
In my opinion, this will not work for you, because you need the kernel module "kmod-hwmon-pwmfan", which is probably not part of Gargoyle :( .

Sounds like a good fix, is this kernel compatible with Gargoyle v.1.12.0?

Or any other options?

That script should just work, and is basically a copy of what i had on my server.

Right! Except that I can't get my hands on it. The links I've found are no good.

For now I just added a job to the crontable to thje defaul fan_control.hs every five minutes
