FX5700 fan stops in text mode
Hello all,

I have a Leadek Winfast Nvidia 5700, on a AMD64 Gigabyte K8M800 Via chipset motherboard.

I've installed Ubuntu x86_64 Linux (latest version, 5.10, up to date) on this machine with the nvidia drivers from the ubuntu repositories (still the 7176 version I believe)

All is well in graphics mode (X11), but when I switch to a text console the graphics card fan stops completely, and never restarts. A great way to kill the card I thought ! This is 100% reproducible every time.

When I reboot (and only then) the fan restarts normally.

First of all I had no idea the fan could be stopped in software, but has anyone got any idea how to make this not happen?

I've tried nvclock 0.8b (0.7 segfaults), and it says my graphics card fan cannot be controlled !

Thanks for any help.

Re: FX5700 fan stops in text mode
The reason that the fan stops and doesn't restart looks like a driver bug.
Second the reason that nvclock doesn't support fanspeed adjustments on your card is that I didn't know fx5700 cards had support for it and not sure how it works. Today I had another user reporting it in the nvclock forum so might figure something out soon. What card are you using BTW? (vendor + model)

I have the exact same issue with ubuntu and a GF FX5600 using the most up todate drives as at this date.
Will play around and see if I can figure out why.

EDIT: I should add this is a ubuntu fault, as I have just moved from debian which I NEVER had this problem.

I found a fix, I was running driver version 8178 however dropping back to 7664 stopped the problem.

I hope that helps someone.
