I'm confused by two things concerning ACPI on my laptop. I have been looking all over the internet for stuff on this and still am having a problem. I'll try and provide as much info as possible (sorry Grogan about the KDE compile question). I have read that in order to change the "trip_points" where the fan turns on, one should issue a command such as "echo -n "x:x:x:..." > trip_points while root and in the proper directory. While the values will change (I check them with cat trip_points), nothing changes as far as the temp that the fan starts. FUrthermore, everytime I restart the values are reset. The only reason I am even fucking with this at all is because my laptop gets rediculously hot and the temps are set really high right now. Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?
