I just installed Gentoo on my system76 gazelle. I am running into fan issues they keep running even when idle. I did some research and I saw that this can be controlled via fancontrol. I ran the command pwmconfig an recieve the following error.

gentoo-gazelle rican-linux # pwmconfig
# pwmconfig revision 6166 (2013-05-01)
This program will search your sensors for pulse width modulation (pwm)
controls, and test each one to see if it controls a fan on
your motherboard. Note that many motherboards do not have pwm
circuitry installed, even if your sensor chip supports pwm.

We will attempt to briefly stop each fan using the pwm controls.
The program will attempt to restore each fan to full speed
after testing. However, it is ** very important ** that you
physically verify that the fans have been to full speed
after the program has completed.

/usr/sbin/pwmconfig: There are no pwm-capable sensor modules installed

The sensors command does not see my fans

I am thinking I am missing something in either in a module I need to load or something I need to enable in the kernel.

Any help would be great. Thanks!
