I bought a Toshiba Satellite L305D-SP6805R, It comes with an ATI Radeon HD 3100 graphics card, an AMD Athlon X2 64-bits processor.
I’ve tried to install in Ubuntu and Fedora, but all of them have given me the same problem: the computer reaches 105ºC, the highest temperature allowed by it before shutting itself off to avoid damage. The problem? The fan is not correctly managed/detected by the kernel, and it can’t be managed by the user either.
I found a solution right here: http://yeiacatl.wordpress.com/2010/09/02/installing-linux-in-a-toshiba-satellite-l305d-with-temperature-problems/. But they recommended to use ubuntu 9.10 and it is not longer supported. So my laptop is a little old and I wanted to know what distro should I install.
