 Post subject: Controlling Fan Speed

I just purchased a new Kurobox and loaded Debian from: http://www.kurobox.com/sylver/debian/ke ... 103.tar.gz

The box is working great but the fan seems to be running at full speed even though it feels cool along with the air coming out of it.

I saw a script on the wiki to control the fan; however, it doesn't appear that Debian has the hardware monitor for the temperature control. This wasn't a huge issue as I could just echo the commands to /dev/ttyS1 and I don't notice any difference in the sounds of the fan spinning.

Are there any known issue with Debian and controlling the fan speed?

did you try the commands to make the LEDs blink ?
to check if you're running the commands properly ?

Thanks for the suggestion. It's working correctly now. I guess I wasn't running the commands via root before and this caused this commands to not work.

Since you're using a recent Debian distro, thought I ask you some questions.

I tried to load Debian initially, following the instructions on the Wiki, but hit a dead end in the procedure several times over. I concluded that the instructions didn't match whatever distro I was attempting to install.

Then I got the "Sylver" distro, which is OK, though I haven't been able to get the external USB drive connected to the USB port to be recognized by Windows as a "shared" drive (the other shares on the internal HD of KB-HG do work OK).

Also I haven't had any success using this to enable the KB-HG to be used for a network printer server, though the web UI would seem to indicate that this is supported (in the default image at any rate).

Now that I'm a bit more comfortable with this box I'd give the Debian a shot if it could easily be convinced to support sharing of the USB hard drive and use as a printer server for a connected USB printer.

My main use for this is mt-daapd (Firefly iTunes server) which works fine on the Sylver (actually I compiled the latest beta of mt-daapd from source - was I scared? yes) but that is working OK.

If I could get either of those USB things working on the Sylver OS I'd be just as happy.

I successfully installed debian using the instructions at: http://www.kurobox.com/mwiki/index.php/Debian_install

To get network shares you see under Windows working you'll want to install the Samba package. You then need to edit /etc/samba/samba.conf to add the shares you want to see. I also recommend using the encrypted passwords. Just be sure to use smbpasswd -a <username> to add any new users to allow access.

For USB I installed the hotplug package. This allowed my USB thumb drive to be detected; however, auto mounting on inserting not seem to work. I did modify the /etc/fstab file so it should work on reboot.

What I did was write a small shell script that runs every minute as root via Cron. This monitors /proc/scsi/usb-devices. I then mount the usb device, move over podcasts I've downloaded via podget and then umounting the drive.

Try installing debian again if you want. If you have problem please start a new thread and this will allow people to more easily find and help you.
