. . . just typing
did not do anything and I got this
WARNING: Using default temperature inputs in /proc/acpi/ibm/thermal.
WARNING: You have not provided any correction values for any sensor, and your fan will only start at 55 °C. This can be dangerous for your hard drive.

/proc/acpi/ibm/fan: No such file or directory
Error opening /proc/acpi/ibm/fan. Is this a computer really Thinkpad? Is the thinkpad_acpi module loaded? Are you running thinkfan with root privileges?
Back here in the iBook we've got the fan blowing at moderately high noise levels so the fan is working where in OSX it would not . . . but still don't know if thinkfan is doing anything or whether the temps could be adjusted in thinkfan . . . or whether thinkfan just works for ibm products . . . since thinkfan says it is adjusting the temps in a file that it then says is not found?
I'm posting this here so perhaps "ocmac" will see what I've got going and maybe we can get some insight to help figure it out . . . .
