Concerning gutsy package: athcool (0.3.11-1ubuntu1) [universe]

Package: athcool
Status: install ok installed
Priority: extra
Section: misc
Installed-Size: 124
Maintainer: Ubuntu MOTU Developer <ubuntu-motu at>
Architecture: i386
Version: 0.3.11-1ubuntu1

Current repostitory package for athcool caused my computer to crash.
This was because my mobo ASRock K7S41GX is not supported by athcool
version 0.3.11

I found out that Jacobi (original author?) does have newer version
(0.3.12) availble that fixes this problem. Dowloaded it from and

Now athcool seems to work:

jussi at orc:/usr/sbin$ sudo athcool stat
athcool version 0.3.12
SiS 741/741GX/M741 (1039 0741) found
'ACPI C1 Disconnect Enable' bit is enabled.

The processor seems to run few degrees cooler (from 57 to 52), so I
guess it helped.

So, I just thought that maybe you should be informed that new version
is available so that others that use the SiS741 series chipsets may
enjoy cooler AMD Athlons as well.
