    Question aticonfig --pplib-cmd doesn't work

    aticonfig utility doesn't work properly.For example :
    aticonfig --od-gettemperature
    ERROR - Get temperature failed for the Default Adapter - ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics

    and another

    aticonfig --pplib-cmd "set fanspeed 0 15"
    PPLIB command execution has failed!
    ati_pplib_cmd: execute "set" failed!

    How to fix this?
    Soft:
    Driver is amd catalyst 11.2
    kernel 2.6.37 from liquorix repository
    Distr : debian squeeze.

    I'm not sure if the hd 3200 even has a temperature sensor.

    The pplib command doesn't work here either, but I don't have a fan on the chip anyway. I think the command is correct though. Maybe you can control your fan via lm_sensors?

    As i know the lm_sensors just show the temperatures.
    I also have the HD 3650 adapter. For it output is same :
    aticonfig --od-gettemperature --adapter=1
    ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 1 - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650

    but this command works
    aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-getclocks

    Adapter 0 - ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
    Core (MHz) Memory (MHz)
    Current Clocks : 196 0
    Current Peak : 500 400
    Configurable Peak Range : [500-500] [400-400]
    GPU load : 7%

    but command like set-powerstate, --adapter=1 --od-getclocks, and etc(which rely to power controling and fan controling) doesn't work.

    If
    Code:
    aticonfig --list-adapters
    only returns one string with your graphics chip's name in it, --adapter=0 is probably what you want to use for all the commands.

    I doubt you can use aticonfig to tune fan speed in a laptop.

    The list-adapters return the 2 entries:

    ticonfig --list-adapters
    * 0. 01:05.0 ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics
    1. 02:00.0 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650

    * - Default adapter

    I think there is a way to control fan speed on my Asus PRO57t,because windows drive does it.
