I have Ubuntu netbook edition on my Acer Aspire One D255 netbook and I notice that I always hear the fan working at 100% despite the actual temperature.
I run the sensors command its only at 13c, theres no reason why the fan needs to be running this hard at that temp.
root@adam-netbook:~# sensors acpitz-virtual-0 Adapter: Virtual device temp1: +13.0°C (crit = +100.0°C)
I'm guessing I may need some drivers in order to interact with the fan? Does anyone have any experience with this?
It also seems that "sensors" may not be all that accurate, the temperature never seems to fluctuate.
