CPU fan permenantly on. Toshiba L300. (squeeze/sid (2.6.30-2-686))
I have a Toshiba laptop: Satellite L300, model PSLB8A-0FM004.
I was running Ubuntu (2.6.28-15-generic) with kernel option
acpi_osi="Linux". This option would allow the fan to spin down when
not busy, without the option the fan would spin up and never spin
i.e. acpi_osi="Linux" would allow "normal" fan behaviour.
I migrated to Debian (squeeze/sid (2.6.30-2-686)). The fan never
spins down. I thought I would add acpi_osi="Linux" to see if that
would spin the fan down as it did with the previous (older) Ubuntu
Linux kernel. The fan did not spin down.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
