Originally I installed Fedora 23 on my laptop, then updated to 24 and when it came out to Fedora 25. The laptop is a Dell with an Intel i7 with GPU and a Radeon. I had a problem with the Fan speed at it was suggested that I install i8kutils with the program i8kmon. It automatically adjusts the fan speed according to the CPU's temperature.

Throughout the years of use more and more packages were installed and removed, I tried different window managers and I had the thought of removing unused packages. With that, unfortunately, I accidentally removed the package i8kutils. When I noticed that the fan was always running at the highest speed, I wanted to install this package again dnf couldn't find it. From the repositories I saw that it lastly appeared in Fedora 23. What happened to this package? Why was it removed and how can I adjust the fan speed now that it's missing?

You may get in touch with previous package maintainer here in order to find out what happened with the package.

I'd like to second that question (can't upvote due to <10 points), I have the same problem as well.
