When the fan runs on this machine, I know it! Sometimes, it will run before DSL starts up but then stops once the desktop gets fully displayed... then it never starts again.
The fan works properly when I run the machine under Windows XP, so I'm confident there are no hardware issues involved.
I've tried erasing the noacpi and noapm bootup codes from GRUB, with no change in performance. I'm running 4.0 or 4.1Rc1, I don't remember which it is... is there a version stamp somewhere?
When DSL boots up, I see it mention that the motherboard is ACPI and then see battery, fan, thermal and a couple of other words display in yellow text.
I've gone looking into /proc/acpi/fan/ as Curaga suggested in another thread, but I do not find a subfolder named FAN0 so I cannot create 'state' file to manually turn on the fan. I've seen two folders there named CL01 and CL02 (iirc).
What can I do next?
