Hi mark. 

It's been 2 years since I started following your brilliant instructions to install Peppermint on my AOA 150, and then the fan fix which worked great.  This time, when I installed Peppermint 4 the fan started getting busy again. I followed your fan fix instructions but get an error when I enter: sudo modprobe acerhdf.  It says: ERROR: could not insert 'acerhdf': Invalid argument.  The temp check command does not work either.  It says: No such file or directory.  The fan is still running.  Any ideas please? 

I hope this is the right place to post my question, or am I supposed to start a new topic? 

Thanks.

Karen

Hi Karen .. there's a tutorial for Peppermint 4 here:
Tutorial - Installing PeppermintOS Four on an Acer Aspire One AOA110L ZG5

The acerhdf that's in the default repos for Peppermint 4 is broken .. but take a look at "Stage 10" for how to download/compile/install a fixed version under Peppermint 4.

There are also some other minor adjustments in the Peppermint 4 tutorial ;)

Hi Mark. 

Thanks for getting back to me.  I am probably posting in the wrong place! 

Looking at the link, it is the same as the Stage 10 I followed which is on the Peppermint OS forum posted Fri Aug 30 2013.  The errors I am getting are from following Stage 10.  What should I do now?

What kernel are you currently running .. what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
uname -a

Problem solved in chat .. the issue was that:-

options acerhdf interval=5 fanon=60000 fanoff=55000 kernelmode=1

had been written to:-

/etc/modprobe.d/local.conf

multiple times
