Hi all,

i have install Ubuntu 10.04 on my new Laptop (Fujitsu LifeStyle S760). Every think work "out-of-the-box" except the fan... It start working every minute and top after 30 secondes: noise and bad autonomy.

I firts try to have a look on the temperature sensors but unfortunately, i did not success:

$ sudo sensors-detect
Sorry, no sensors were detected.
This is relatively common on laptops, where thermal management is
handled by ACPI rather than the OS

$ acpitool
Thermal info: <not available>The /etc/init.d/fancontrol is not running and do not want to start...

$ sudo /etc/init.d/fancontrol status
* fancontrol is not running$ sudo /etc/init.d/fancontrol start
$ sudo /etc/init.d/fancontrol status
* fancontrol is not running

$ sudo pwmconfig
... No sensors found! (modprobe sensor modules?)Any idea to solve this issue ?
