I have a new Lifebook E751 (newest? BIOS V1.18) with Linux (Debian Wheezy, Kernel 3.2.0-2-amd64) installed. Most functions work well.
But the fan noise is absolutely annoying, therefore I cannot introduce this notebook with linux in my company. You cannot work with it on a desktop!
The fan runs for ca. 10 seconds laudly, probably with full power, then pauses ca. 30 seconds and so on. No PWM-Control possible?
In BIOS settings I choosed "Silent". Also there are no ACPI fan controls in /proc/acpi/ or /sys/devices/platform/, so I cannot control something with fancontrol. Is there a suitable kernel acpi modul to load manually? With the formerly installed win7 the fan was more silent, therefore there _is_ a possibility to control the fans.
Nb: What do the fujitsu engineers think about the thinkpad-acpi kernel-module? This is what the *nix users want!
Thanks for help!
