[Bug] Bizarre Heat/Fan Issues with Solus

Fri Mar 30, 2018 7:08 am

I am running a Dell 15 XPS 9560, 16Gb Ram/512 GB SSD.

With NO background apps running, and UNTOUCHED, the Dell CPU fans would kick HIGH SPEED on every 10 minutes, run for about about 8 minutes, then stop. This happened constantly.

See attached graph.

Are these temps too high, or fairly normal?

Is the CPU fan related to installing the Nvidea Graphics drivers?

I'm having the same problem, and I've described it here
As far as I can tell, it seems to be a driver related problem, since uninstalling the Nvidia drivers and reverting to Intel "solves" it (at least for me).
When in doubt, choke 'em out !

Instead of the graph you should look at the processes to see which one causes the high course usage.

Hehehehe, yeah, sorry.

I did a TOP and the #1 item was budgie-vm.

This issue is not only with Solus OS.

I installed Ubuntu Budgie, selected the Nvidia driver and the fans kicked on like a 747 taking off from JFK.

Annoying.

Uninstalled.

I am (almost) ready to re-install Windows.... :(

Well, I've updated the bug that I opened (still in backlog as I write, by the way......) adding this info.
Given that the same behavior happens even on Ubuntu I'm tempted to say that's a budgie bug.....
Well, ikey's turn, I think :mrgreen:

Yes, there's a bug in the newly patched kernels, which affects power management. I've noticed it specifically in Intel onboard hardware. High core CPU and fan after very recent kernel updates.

You can use grub-customizer, or manually adjust your grub.

The following worked for me on a variety of OS during recent testing.

Simply add the following to the kernel boot parameter list (where it usually says something like "quiet" or "quiet splash", etc...

Code: Select all

pcie_aspm=off

Save the file, update grub or clr-boot-manager (think solus calls it) & reboot. Believe the correct command is

Code: Select all

 sudo clr-boot-manager update

Hmmm...

ok. I'll give it a shot.

The documentation to what this is here:

https://access.redhat.com/documentation ... guide/aspm

It doesn't seem like shutting it off will interfere with the space/time continuum.
