Fan-Control-Daemon is a daemon that uses input from coretemp module and sets the fan speed using the applesmc module. This enhanced version assumes any number of processors and fans (max. 10).
- It only uses the temperatures from the processors as input.
- It requires coretemp and applesmc kernel modules to be loaded.
- It requires root use
- It daemonizes or stays in foreground
- Verbose mode for both syslog and stdout

Run The Tests (Recommended)
It is recommended to run the tests before installing the program sudo ./bin/mbpfan -t
Install with sudo make install
It actually copies mbpfan to /usr/sbin.
An init file suitable for /lib/lsb/init-functions (Debian & Ubuntu fur sure) is located in the main folder of the source files. It is called mbpfan.init.debian Rename it to mbpfan, give it execution permissions (chmod +x mbpfan) and move it to /etc/init.d Then, add it to the default runlevels with sudo update-rc.d mbpfan defaults (Ubuntu example)
An init file suitable for Fedora (and probably RedHat) can be found in the file mbpfan.init.fedora
If not installed, run with sudo bin/mbpfan
If installed, manually run with sudo mbpfan
If installed and using the init file, run with (Ubuntu example) sudo service mbpfan start
Usage: ./mbpfan OPTION(S) -h Show the help screen -f Run in foreground -t Run the tests -v Be (a lot) verbose
