  • aticonfig --pplib-cmd doesn't work

    aticonfig utility doesn't work properly.For example :
    aticonfig --od-gettemperature
    ERROR - Get temperature failed for the Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics

    and another

    aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 15"
    PPLIB command execution has failed!
    ati_pplib_cmd: execute "set" failed!

    How to fix this?
    Soft:
    Driver is amd catalyst 11.2
    kernel 2.6.37 from liquorix repository
    Distr : debian squeeze.

    I'm not sure if the hd 3200 even has a temperature sensor.

    The pplib command doesn't work here either, but I don't have a fan on the chip anyway. I think the command is correct though. Maybe you can control your fan via lm_sensors?

      As i know the lm_sensors just show the temperatures.
      I also have the HD 3650 adapter. For it output is same :
      aticonfig --od-gettemperature --adapter=1
      ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 1 - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650

      but this command works
      aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks

      Adapter 0 - ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
      Core (MHz) Memory (MHz)
      Current Clocks : 196 0
      Current Peak : 500 400
      Configurable Peak Range : [500-500] [400-400]
      GPU load : 7%

      but command like set-powerstate, --adapter=1 --od-getclocks, and etc(which rely to power controling and fan controling) doesn't work.

        If
        Code:
        aticonfig --list-adapters
        only returns one string with your graphics chip's name in it, --adapter=0 is probably what you want to use for all the commands.

        I doubt you can use aticonfig to tune fan speed in a laptop.

          The list-adapters return the 2 entries:

          ticonfig --list-adapters
          * 0. 01:05.0 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
          1. 02:00.0 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650

          * - Default adapter

          I think there is a way to control fan speed on my Asus PRO57t,because windows drive does it.
