Probably not Ubuntu specific, but I hope this helps someone.
    Absolutely! I got a 15" Edge a month ago and gave up trying to get it turned on. Was contemplating a temporary windows install to enable it, but no need now! Thanks muchly so. This was on FC13 for what it matters,

    'thinkfan' available in the repo controls fan! i don't know how well it does, but at times i do feel the fan throwing air a little faster than normal, esp if its under load! so yes, i believe it does work!
    Can anyone confirm that thinkfan controls fan in edge 13? Could someone post how many RPMs are there at level 1 (just type sensors in terminal). Thanks...

    I've also found that my fan has been noisier lately... but I don't know if it's been before or after I've installed the last beta version or Ubuntu 10.10 which I did because I couldn't manage to make the bluetooth and the mic work in 10.04. Finally I managed to make the thing works updating the BIOS and with a clean installation and using the "olpc-xo-1_5" trick... but now, the mic is recording the fan noise!! which is painfully amplified when recorded!

    My fan values from sensor are:
    Code:
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +26.8C  (crit = +100.0C)                  
    
    k8temp-pci-00c3
    Adapter: PCI adapter
    Core0 Temp:  +54.0C                                    
    Core0 Temp:  +53.0C                                    
    Core1 Temp:  +50.0C                                    
    Core1 Temp:  +51.0C                                    
    
    thinkpad-isa-0000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    fan1:        652 RPM
    temp1:        +0.0C                                    
    temp2:       +58.0C                                    
    temp3:       +58.0C                                    
    temp4:        +0.0C                                    
    temp5:        +0.0C                                    
    temp6:        +0.0C                                    
    temp7:       +30.0C

    Thanks-strange-my thinkpad r500 works on 1900 RPMs and is barely audible. And 625 seems to be very low speed....

    two questions:
    1. since when did Lenovo begin selling ARM Edge 13? well since when did Lenovo began selling ARM based machines anyway!

    2. and if its ARM based, how come you've got two cores!

    my sensors output is:

    Code:
    $ sensors 
    acpitz-virtual-0
    Adapter: Virtual device
    temp1:       +39.0C  (crit = +105.0C)
    no fans! no other cores!
    while booting, it shows:
    thinkpad_acpi: Not yet supported ThinkPad detected

    any Edge owner got this sorted?

    I get that error as well. It is a known bug and people are working on it.

    Re: Ubuntu on Lenovo ThinkPad Edge

    Hey I have a think pad edge, I got headphones to work on my computer(thanks to this forum) and for a while I had problems with the hibernate/suspend disconnecting me from the INTERNET then freezing when I tried to reconnect. However after a unnoticed update these problems where "fixed" as far is I could tell. However in the last update or two the suspend hibernate problems have resurfaced. This time with a vengeance.

    Whenever I close the lid or let it go into suspend/hibernate my computer freezes on a black screen. And I think I might be experiencing overheating; it seems hotter and is significantly slower.

    Has anyone else been experiencing these problems?

    I have a think-pad edge with AMD chip-set

    I know this does not help but I am also fairly Linux illiterate. However I really do appreciate a lot of things about Ubuntu.

    hi!
    the problem i believe is not with the suspend or hibernate, but with the wifi connection. it happens a lot of time with me.
    so if you have a wifi connection, which 'connects automatically', that's the cause of freeze!
    check out this thread, i posted nearly the same thing! its reported to have a driver problem!

    This page has a better description of how to install the driver (the link above deoesn't decribe how to remove the ubuntu driver). Installing the Realtek driver stoped my connection dropping as often and I get a better reception. I had to reinstall it after a kernel update though, as it went back to using the Ubuntu driver.
