FS#135 - [thinkfan] add package

Could it be possible to add this package :


“A minimalist fan control program. Supports the sysfs hwmon interface and thinkpad_acpi”

License : GPL

to the repo ?


27/10/2021 : A task closure has been requested. Reason for request: Cannot be implemented because of problematic dependencies.

Also need an OpenRC start/stop/status script

I compiled it myself meanwhile (really needed it), I used the openrc script provided by Gentoo.

This works fine :

depend() {
	after modules

start() {
	ebegin "Starting thinkfan"
	start-stop-daemon --start --exec /usr/bin/thinkfan -- -q -s5 -c /etc/thinkfan.conf
	eend $?

stop() {
	ebegin "Stopping thinkfan"
	start-stop-daemon --stop --exec /usr/bin/thinkfan
	eend $?

reload() {
	ebegin "Sending SIGHUP to thinkfan($PID)"
	kill -HUP $PID
	eend $?

Thanks for the input, but this package cannot be added as it depends on libatasmart and this library is a complete problem of its own. Sorry, but adding won't be possible.
