Nvclock able to change fanspeed Nvidia-Settings not.
 
Hello.

I can modify fanspeed using nvclock ( very simple ).

But I can't using nvidia-settings.

Code:

nvidia-settings -t --query [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed
30

Code:

nvidia-settings -a "[fan:0]/GPUFanControlState=1" -a "[fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed=47"
Nothing change :

Code:

nvidia-settings -t --query [fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed
30


I am not using X11 configuration file.
I have install the driver by hand following the readme

My config :

Opensuse 12.1
Linux 3.1.9-1.4-desktop #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Jan 27 08:55:10 UTC 2012 (efb5ff4) x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

You need a xorg.conf with coolbits to change fan settings
Code:


cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
# RPM Fusion - nvidia-xorg.conf
#
Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard0"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        Option "Coolbits" "4"
EndSection

Hello.

1)
actually I read that on various forums, but why nvclock can manage without xorg.conf file ?

2)
How to convert my actual configuration to a full xorg.conf file ?

"Full" xorg.conf is a thing of the past. All you need what leigh123linux gave you and *only* that.

Seems not for nvidia-settings program.

nvclock has nothing to do with xorg.conf as I can modify fan speed without any xorg.conf and there is none on my box.

I will try your suggestion.

Most of the stuff nvidia-settings puts into xorg.conf either does nothing (the InputDevice sections), is redundant, or the worst case scenario - screws things up.

Actually, putting:

Options "Coolbits" "5"

in the xorg.conf enables the user to both overclock and set the fan speed in nvidia-settings in 302.07 and probably earlier versions. 302.07 will even find the optimal overclock speed for you. Very nice. NVClock isn't needed anymore.

I am running 295.40 from nvidia.com

By default the fan run too fast and is noisy. So I set the speed (via nvclock for the moment) as necessary via cron. My only problem is to remove error log from the kernel because of some memory usage ( rsyslog do that automatically for me).

I was just wondering why nvclock can manage the fan without the help of xorg.conf and why nvida-settings not.

Honestly, that's a moot point. nvidia-config is the officially-sanctioned solution that will continue to be maintained and updated. NVClock was a third-party utility that's no longer maintained or updated as far as I can tell. I enjoyed it while it lasted, but it's gone. I'm grateful that nVidia stepped in with a solution. It is what it is.

Because nvclock is nvclock, and nvidia-settings is nvidia-seetings.

Clever answer !

One is working, the other not.

Hello.

I am running just for test 295.49 from nvidia site.

I am not alone see : post2552856


Steel not working.

Code:

nvidia-settings -a "[gpu:0]/GPUFanControlState=1" -a "[fan:0]/GPUCurrentFanSpeed=25"
Here is the new generated xorg.conf file using nvidia_settings.

Code:

Any idea ?

As it is too noisy I will return to previous version if I did not find any solution on the web.
