1 I might be sending this to the wrong forum, but here goes...
3 I noticed the other day when I went to install my new laptop using the
4 2005.1 minimal install cd that the install would crap out about 1/2
5 way through building gcc. This was due to overheating. I tried
6 various different methods of cooling and finally settled on an antec
7 cooling pad - which seems about the only way I can get it cool enough
8 to run the bootstrap compiles. I mean - the system would have been
9 too hot to touch at the point that it shuts off.
11 Anyway, I was looking around and noticed that the fan was not running
12 at all during the gentoo install from pretty much the time it boots.
13 I figured maybe it is a general linux issue, but I tried the kubuntu
14 install and that installed just fine and the fan was happily purring
15 away.
17 I didn't really think much of it, until I was looking at a page about
18 setting up ACPI for laptops and noticed a fan ACPI sensor thingie (I'm
19 sure its not called a sensor - thingie should suffice). I suspect
20 that there is some amount of ACPI running on since the screen will
21 turn off at some point while the compiles are going on.
23 So, is this just an oversight of not turning on the fan or what?
25 Thanks,
26 Jared
