Greetings fellow Gentoo users :)
I wonder if anyone could be of assistance. I am desperately trying to
get Gentoo playing nicely with my IBM ThinkPad T40, but I am having a
/serious/ problem that could easily render my laptop inoperable if I
continue to use it.
Basically my CPU fan doesn't appear to be spinning up correctly under
Gentoo (but works as expected under WinXP - dual boot setup), and I
caught my CPU at 68 degrees yesterday! Fortunately I noticed before it
was too late, and used the Pentium M speedstep feature to reduce my CPU
to 500Mhz, dropping the temperature back down to a comfortable 44 degrees.
I really don't know what to do. I've tried every approach I've
encountered, but nothing seems to be able to keep my CPU temperature
down without knocking 2/3 off my CPU speed (which is obviously not desired).
Is there anyone with any words of wisdom on this topic?
Many thanks in advance :)
