I would really appreciate a i8k package that will let me run and control the fans on this Dell Latitude C600. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance!

Best regards,

I took a look at i8k but it's only for windows theire is a linux program by the same author called dellfand.  It's a commandline tool I packaged it but have not dell laptop to try it out on however you should definately down load the program and give it a try the web page is at
http://dellfand.dinglisch.net/
simply download and follow the instructions on the web page.  Don't think it needs to be in the repository as many will not need it.
Cheers

The sources are here: http://people.debian.org/~dz/i8k/i8kutils_1.25.tar.gz
According to the README, the kernel driver is included.

Appreicate the command line util and the nod in the direction of the sources, reading from the Debian info just a bit, I found the modules are there already; so i can get the utilities up and going, or the gkrellm plugin built. Thanks so much for all the assistance!

You are welcome, I was coming back to tell you the same Smiley, I just found the kernel driver is in the VL config:

root:# zcat /proc/config.gz | grep I8K
