Re: TM800: thermal zone os independent?

worry about, but I want to be sure that the fan is independent off any
OS specific acpi implementations. Can anyone confirm/deny that there's
nothing that can intercept any fan on/off events?

I think so: running woody with the 2.4.18 kernel (without ACPI), the fan triggered each time the CPU was above a load of 90% for more than 5 seconds. If you're really concerned about that, I think you can change a setting in the BIOS to turn on the CPU fan all the time.
