I am using linux mint 13 mate 32 bit.
In the ubuntu-wiki I have read, that with older proprietary fglrx amd drivers you have to set the graphic-cards fan speed manually to a certain amount, before starting 3d-programs, or maybe games with wine.
Fglrxinfo in the terminal gives me these info:
Code: Select all
display: :0 screen: 0
OpenGL vendor string: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.
OpenGL renderer string: ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series
OpenGL version string: 4.2.11627 Compatibility Profile Context
I am not able to download and install later drivers or driver corrections, so this is the driver I have to deal with.
Do I have to manually set the fan speed of my graphics-card or will it happen automatically? I have tested a demoscene demo, and I listened to the fans in my computer, but nothing has happened. In the ubuntu-wiki was also to be read, that with older drivers the graphicscard-fan will run at 100% all the time. In my situation this is not the case.
Do I have to worry or can I let things run?
Thanks in advance,
