Hi All, I just got a new used laptop and decided to try a distro other
than Fedora Core which I've been using for years(redhat). I really like
ubuntu/debian more than FC. I'm supposed to be using Solaris 10 x86,
but that's a longer story. The problem is that the laptop keeps
overheating, just like all these others. I have an HP Pavilian dv1000.
I can't get the fan to even turn on! Luckily, I'm mainly using the
terminal for what I'm doing at work ( sunfire e25k VCS cluster), so if
it croaks, I'm really not out anything. What gives? I see hints all
over the place, but no solutions. Is there a summary of this issue in
one place? I've tried all the solutions listed here and on many other
sites to no avail. btw, my /proc/acpi/fan directory is empty. lm-
sensors doesn't find any sensors. Am I out of luck with this laptop?
