I'd be interested to see that supported in a way that doesn't require
the unsupported eee.ko module. I understand some patches
have been accepted to support fan control in eeepc_laptop.ko through
the sysfs interface, but there is no support for it in userspace yet,
and that further patches may be needed before it is.

Not so much interested in this. Since eee.ko is not in Debian (nor do
I see it ever entering Debian unless it is accepted upstream in
the kernel,) does the applet leave out that option if you don't have
eee.ko loaded?

I didn't make test with last versions of eee-acpi-scripts and other
components of Debian Eee pc. I'm now reinstalling Debian on my EeePc to
make more tests.

If you want to play with it, the package is almost finished and
available on mentors, or on
https://code.launchpad.net/~gilir/eee-applet/debian-trunk .

Regards,
Julien Lavergne

FWIW, at least on model 901, the kernel eeepc-laptop module exports
fan control (and temperature reading) under /sys/class/hwmon. Reading
and writing to the fan control files does work -- the fan speed
changes.
