as a fresh owner of the Helios4 NAS (batch 3) I've prepared a rpm with
some bits to make the user experience better. It could be done with
ansible playbook too, but I think a rpm is more convenient in this case.
It simply packs
- modules-load file to force load lm75 that's not loaded automagically
- udev rules for the temperature sensors symlinks from Armbian
- fancontrol config file using the symlinks
- Requires: lm_sensors for fancontrol, i2c-tools for the OLED display
shipped with batch 3
The fancontrol config is set for the single PWM control (j10) that's
available in mainline (and Fedora) kernels. The source rpm contains
also the Armbian's config with both fans, but this relies on the
out-of-tree patch , which now requires rebasing.
- ship a script controlling the OLED display
- rebase the gpio/PWM patch and build some kernel with it
Right now I'm running it with the bottom fan (uncontrolled) fan
disconnected and it doesn't seem to be running too hot. But use this
method on your own risk.
Comments, contributions, etc are welcome :-)
