It would require a kernel recompile if not enabled, it may not exist.

I don't have a U3

If it exists but isn't enabled it will say.

Code: Select all
 CONFIG_THERMAL_WRITABLE_TRIPS is not enabled

or not set, can't remember.

no the code does not exist so i just hard wired it to the 5 volt rail..for me to compile a kernel..well i am not at the point with compiling that it is easy 4 me yet..
i did search the topic a fair bit and most of what i had read consisted of patches and recompiling..the hard wire works fine 4 me..

Yep, nothing wrong with that. I don't understand half the stuff you say about hardware, we all have our strong and weak points.
