I have a laptop in which the processor fan runs constantly. I believe
I can regulate it by using acpi. I now only use apm. I run slackware
9.1 and a custom kernel 2.4.22. Whenever I compile support for acpi it
boots to a certain point and then the screen shuts off, however, the
system is still going, because I have waited and logon as root and
sutdown and got the shutdown beep. does anyone know what I'm doing
