I have upgraded to Breezy from Hoary about a week ago, and am running the
2.6.12-9-686-smp kernel. All my packages are up to date as of this morning. I
have been updating every few days.
My laptop has a full P4 (not mobile).
My laptop fan runs constantly since I have upgraded, but not always at full
speed. My temp doesn't seem high:
temperature: 48 C
(trip_points is 85C)
When I run processor-intensive applications, the fan does kick up a notch, so it
seems like things are working correctly, but the fan is *always* running. I
don't remember this behavior in Hoary.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Or am I just losing it (which is possible!)
