This package is built from tempestuous' work here.

Install the PET and reboot.

Run
Code:
modprobe acerhdf

Then check
Code:
dmesg

Also, read the help file /usr/my-documents/acerhdf-README.txt

To start the fan control, run
Code:
echo -n enabled > /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/mode

I am using this in Quirky 1.3 on an AOA 150 ZG5 along with the CPU Frequency Scaling Tool and CPUtemp. . The default temperature settings are fanon=63C and fanoff=58C. If it's working correctly, you should immediately hear the fans turn off. They will turn on with some intensive activity like a youtube video.

Update: To set your own temperature limits, you must work in thousands. For example:
Code:
modprobe acerhdf fanon=55000 fanoff=50000
acerhdf-0.5.25-k2.6.33.2.pet

I think mine is the same computer, but Puppy 5.1.1 Or is it 5.11
First time the fan has been off! Thank you!

Excellent! I found that the default temperature limits made the machine run a little hot, so I changed them to the lower values shown above.

If I get it at all. One need one pet for each kernel one use?

I have Acer AAO D250 and the fan work on some OS and not on others.

EDIT Thanks Rcrsn51
I tried to use these acerhdf pets and read not carefully enough that one should ignore the error message and I think I managed to install it but how does one know if it works?

Will Zigberts widget or the Hardware info give right temp if it works?

Correct. This PET only works on Puppies with the 2.6.33.2 kernel, like Lupu and Quirky.

Gladly. I have attached two new versions - for Wary k2.6.32smp and for Puppy 5.3 Slacko k2.6.37.6.

Since first posting the k2.6.33.2 edition. I have found an Acer netbook model that does not work with this driver. Please provide feedback.

I am using lupu528 with kernel 2.6.33.2 on a acer aspire 1 D255.
I downloaded your .pet (acerhdf-0.5.25-k2.6.33.2.pet) then installed and did a reboot, however when I try to run
modprobe acerhdf I get the following error.

FATAL: Error inserting acerhdf (/lib/modules/2.6.33.2/kernel/drivers/misc/acerhdf.ko): Invalid argument

I also get the same error when I run the following.
modprobe acerhdf fanon=44000 fanoff=42000


I also get this message from dmesg.
unknown (unsupported) BIOS version Acer/AOD255/V3.05(DDR2), please report, aborting!


Any idea what I might be doing wrong?
Thanks

You probably have a model that is not supported by this driver. It has not been updated in a while. Try this:
Code:
modprobe acerhdf force_product="AOD255"

But I couldn't get this to work.
