Default 169.12 & fan bug?

Hi all,

Can anyone quickly fill me in on the fan always on bug - is it still present in 169.12? Because the fan on my new laptop has been pretty much always on since I upgraded to the 169 drivers - I couldn't figure out what was causing it for a long while until I remembered there was a bug with nvidia drivers.

Is this still true, or should I look somewhere for the problem?

Thanks!

Hy,

With my desktop and 8500GT (Debian Lenny KDE), I keep 169.07.

Fan is 100% with 169.09 and 169.12

Sorry to bump, but same trouble with Debian testing 2.6.24.

With 169.12 fan is 100%... with 169.07, it's OK...

If you are using a geforce 8500 / 8600 card and believe this function works on windows you could give me a hand with support for this in Nvclock. Contact me.

Any progress on this?

I couldn't install nvclock, so I'm still stuck with the fan on...

I had a bit of a hard time installing nvclock cvs version (I'm still discovering and learning a lot...)

But I did it...

I installed nvclock and sent debug info to Thunderbird who is currently analyzing them (based on my 8500GT)...
