I installed Ubuntu 12.04 on a Dell Inspiron 15R. As soon as I boot, the fan starts at full speed and stays constantly on. I've seen similar posts, where installing fan control apps are recommended like
i8kmon jupiter mesa-utils
but in general, these do not allow for automatic fan speed control and one has to manually set the fan speed, while keeping track of the processor's temperature. See: Similar post.

coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Physical id 0: +45.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +40.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +45.0°C (high = +87.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)
Any hint on how to solve this ?
