Why does the fan run at full speed and my Fedora crashes a little later?

Hello dear community,

I have a problem with my fresh installation on my new used bought laptop. :frowning:

I thought it was a problem with my battery. Because after some time the device crashes as if the battery was removed without warning. But even another battery did not solve the problem.

The fan is turned up to full speed without the CPU or memory being used to capacity. Then it shuts down a little later.
The solution for me is currently that I put the laptop into hibernation briefly when the fan starts up and wake it up again. Then the runs normally again for a while.

Unfortunately, this is not a condition I can work with. :frowning:
I did not notice anything in the logs either.

I would be very happy if you had a tip for me. :slight_smile:

And also how I can reduce the start-up of the system. Or is that related?

Hi Jack,

Unless I am mistaken, this laptop comes with either Quadro M1200 or M2200 graphics. Have you enabled the RPM Fusion repositories and installed the nVidia driver?

Once everything is installed and working, check the output of systemd-analyze blame and systemd-analyze critical-chain. These should give you some hints as to what can be improved.

Hi Alexpl, :smiley:

thanks for the info.
It is right, I use the Quadro M2200:

lspci | grep Quadro
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM206GLM [Quadro M2200 Mobile] (rev a1)

I actually want to use only open source software. It does not have to be free under the GPL. But I thought RPM Fusion nonfree also means closed source. This is a wrong assumption or?

nonfree for redistributable software that is not Open Source Software (as defined by the Fedora Licensing Guidelines); this *includes* software with publicly available source-code that has "no commercial use"-like restrictions 

I think the word “includes” is meant as a “is” or?

Then I just need to activate nonfree - nvidia and install it?

Thanks a lot!

Jack

The thing is that the nouveau open-source driver provides very limited functionality compared to that provided by the nVidia driver and more pertinent to your issue, it cannot change clock speeds and that is why your laptop is heating up. Unless you are using Intel graphics or some older graphics card that is well-supported by nouveau, you can’t have a fully open-source system and full control over your hardware, that is the sad truth.

See the relevant section in the FAQ.
By the way, any video player you might want to install, e.g. vlc, mpv, smplayer, etc. is found in RPM Fusion.

Well, I guess so, but in the long run you might be better off enabling the full RPM Fusion repositories following the instructions I linked to in my first post.

Oh ok. Thanks alexpl. I thought nouveau is as good as the original. :confused: I installed the nonfree. Next time I will buy intel. :zipper_mouth_face:

Only networking takes now some time. The rest is fine I think:

It is ok, is’n it?

Running on 100% open-source software is very hard. I think you should accept a bit of compromise. For example, your intel CPU (and all intel CPUs starting from 2008) has a second processor running the intel management engine that has full access to everything without your OS knowing a thing about it. Also your BIOS is very likely proprietary unless it is a Libreboot/coreboot device. Add to that the firmware that ships with the kernel also mostly proprietary. (The kernel itself is open source, but the firmware required by some devices isn’t).

If you want to be safer while using proprietary drivers (and any driver in general), enable IOMMU which restricts each device to its allocated memory only.

You are right and that is a whole other discussion.

In the case of RPM Fusion, most packages end up there because of US patent laws and not because of their source code being unavailable.

Hopefully by then everyone will have seen the light and everything will be free software!

Everything seems in order. There’s some delay until the LUKS-encrypted volume is unlocked (as one would expect). Do you mount anything over the network? I see the nfs-client and friends loading.

No, I do not use nfs. I juast have my local btrfs volumen. :face_with_monocle:
