    Default asusfan on asus a8jm notebook

    Hello All,

    I have an Asus A8jm notebook that has a nvidia 7600 Go video card in it. I have installed asusfan from the repos, however whenever I try to run it, it gives the following error:

    linux@linux:~> asusfan --mode=2 --speed=3500
    ERROR: Could not initialise NVidia card

    Does anyone know whether I am missing something? It was a clean opensuse install.

    linux@linux:~> uname -a
    Linux linux #1 SMP 2008/02/10 20:01:04 UTC i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    asusfan version: 0.1-92

    Thanks in advance

    Thumbs down Re: asusfan on asus a8jm notebook

    8 years later ....
    I do have the very same issue on asus GL752.
    when booting with "nomodeset" kernel option, the fan stops running but resolution is fixed to 800x600 (not too interesting).
    I found no workaround
    Any help is welcome.

    Laptop Machines with Intel+NVIDIA GPU require Bumblebee to manage the two different GPU.

    If you installed NVIDIA driver remove it and follow instructions here

    If there is only the free Radeon, Intel or Nouveau Driver running, they need kernel-modesetting so nomodest is not a good option......

    And you have another Problem than the TE 8 Years ago.

    So please open a new Thread.

    Yes, a new problem on another openSUSE version with probably no connection at all to this very old thread.

    Create a new thread with a good title. That is your best chance to draw the attention of nowadays active memebers here.

    This thread is CLOSED.
