I could not reproduce the "build error" in Archlinux 2017.04 cloning repo from github. Could you please characterize better the steps you did?

Oh no, no new features! Just an update from the previous version to work with the renamed kernel module dell-smm-hwmon.

The package also was cleanup to removed unused features. I can say now that i8kutils is becoming a daemon that monitors system temperature without UI.

OdinEidolon commented on 2017-03-09 10:52

That's great news, do we have new features?

vitorafsr commented on 2017-03-06 22:01

I am about to release i8kutils 1.43.

If you can look at the source code, and point suggestions, I can include the modifications in the version.

Couldn't load on my Dell Inspiron 1300:

modprobe: ERROR: could not insert 'dell_smm_hwmon': No such device

However, `modprobe i8k force=1` worked flawlessly and all the functionality is there.

You have to check if the fan(s) can be throttled in command line with i8kfan, for example on my vostro laptop:

(as root)
# i8kfan
-1 0
(which means there is no left fan and the right fan is off)

# i8kfan - 1
(turns the right fan on at the minimum level)

# i8kfan - 2
(turns the right fan at the maximum level)

# i8kfan - 0
(turns the right fan off)

On my laptop the bios always takes the control in case if high temp: I can force the fan to be on, but I cannot force the fan to be off when the cpu is too hot for the bios to avoid cpu burn.

I used to map sudoed-'i8kfan' commands with keyboard shortcuts in my window manager.

How can I use this package correct?
