  1. My bad, hardcoded default value. Long time ago I used kernel module parameters. There are none in pwm-fan module. Please, tell me how to change that to value that fits my needs? :-) (Other way that I use to write values to /sys/*) Regards
  2. For me problem here is hardcoded pwm frequency; https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/arch/arm64/boot/dts/rockchip/rk3399-rockpro64.dtsi line 61 fan: pwm-fan { compatible = "pwm-fan"; #cooling-cells = <2>; fan-supply = <&vcc12v_dcin>; pwms = <&pwm1 0 50000 0>; }; Fans I tested work at low frequencies, below 1000 Hz.
  3. @soerenderfor AFAIR: echo 0 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip1/unexport modprobe pwm-fan
  4. P.S. It's good to set duty_cycle first, as you can't set period lower than duty_cycle - you'll get "permission denied".
  5. @soerenderfor echo 100 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip1/pwm0/period - this is 100% (at frequency of 100Hz) echo 40 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip1/pwm0/duty_cycle - 40 here is 40% of 100 Period is cycle frequency, duty is percentage of this cycle filled with logical 1, here 12V, so at 100Hz cycle is 10ms, 4ms signal is 12V and 6ms its 0V echo 500 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip1/pwm0/period - this is 100% (at frequency of 500Hz) echo 250 > /sys/class/pwm/pwmchip1/pwm0/duty_cycle - 250 here is 50% of 500 No problem :-)
  6. @soerenderfor I already tried tux3dv fan cotrol. Well, it isn't magic box :-) What it does is to read from /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp and write values from curve build from config f.e. 100..255 into /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon*/pwm1. All of this can be done manually. It uses pwm-fan kernel module. If you unload this module there is no more /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon* and fan stops. Real problem here is lack of customization in this module. In 5.7.15 version there is hardcoded 50kHz pwm frequency - which simply w
  7. Hi, Is fan control still broken? Linux rockpro64 5.7.15-rockchip64 #20.08 SMP PREEMPT Mon Aug 17 00:26:28 CEST 2020 aarch64 aarch64 aarch64 GNU/Linux echo 255 > /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon2/pwm1 echo 0 > /sys/devices/platform/pwm-fan/hwmon/hwmon2/pwm1 Commands line above work, but writing anything between (like 240, 200, etc.) does not. I can hear noise imho coming from fan coils when I write 253 to pwm1, maybe it's pwm frequency too high/too low? I checked two different 80x80mm fans, same result. Fans start to spin connected to DC ~4V, s
