Dear All,

The cpu in my FX 8350 box was prone to overheating.

Finally I bought a 115i Pro cooler and installed it.

If you are a linux user then you are recommended to use this software:

https://github.com/audiohacked/OpenCorsairLink

There is a video here that is quite helpful if you turn up the audio a bit:

Googling around what I seem to detect is that people have difficulty installing this software and running it.

You seem to have to manually compile it as follows:

as root

Code:
$make

$make install


It then lists a set of commands:

Code:
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf --help
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf --device 0
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf --device 0 --led channel=0,mode=0,color=00FF00
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf --device 0 --fan channel=0,mode=5
$ ./OpenCorsairLink.elf --device 0 --pump mode=5


How many of these are actually needed to run it successfully in reality I am not sure - perhaps the last two I am guessing here.

It did occur to me that we might be able to make a build file out of it and then we would have a way to ensure that it would install
predictably on any gentoo box with a Corsair cooler of this type in it.

I will have read through this link here:

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Basic_guide_to_write_Gentoo_Ebuilds


Comments appreciated on this.

Regards

Michael Fothergill

It has no tagged releases, which is a bit unfortunate. Any ebuild would need to be either a live ebuild or an arbitrarily chosen point-in-time snapshot ebuild. However, if make / make install is all that is needed to build it, the ebuild should be very easy to write.

If you get stuck, post what you have and someone can help you with it.
