September 15th, 2009, 06:52 PM
Hello, I install some fan driver packages, but I don't know where to run them from, they do not appear under the system / administration or preference menus! Where do I start them from ? By the way were are packages installed in the directories hierachy?

The specific problem :

On Toshiba Satellite L300 1E6 with Ubuntu Desktop 9-09 / 64 :

When using very demanding programm for the processor (a chess program --> nice test with two autoplayers to launch the 2 procesor at 100%), then the fan start at full speed! (much loader than what I heard with Vista), and even when the processors are back to 1% work the fan never stop! I waited for 10 minutes, then went away for 3 hours! The fan was still running at full speed and the processors almost sleeping!

Anyone got some info ?
