utilities for Dell Inspiron and Latitude laptops
This is a collection of utilities to control Dell Inspiron and Latitude
laptops. It includes programs to turn the fan on and off, to read fan
status, CPU temperature, BIOS version and to handle the volume buttons
and Fn-keys.
The package includes also a small Tk applet, designed to be swallowed in the
gnome panel, which monitors the CPU temperature and controls automatically
the fans accordingly to user defined thresholds.
The programs require the kernel module i8k.o which can be compiled from
the package sources or found in Linux kernel 2.4.14 and later versions.
The kernel module has been tested only on Inspiron 8000 laptops but it
should work on any Inspiron and Latitude laptops.
