Hi all!
I would like to know how to use acpi_thermal. I read its man page and it seems I could control the thermal trip points, but I have no idea how I would do that.
I need to control when my cpu fan starts to I can run my laptop cooler (Toshiba Qosmio X500 i7).
The BIOS in this computer has no options to do that, so I am wondering if I could force linux ACPI at boot time to allow me to do it...

Ps: I do not need to clean the vents or anything like that... I just want to be able to control the fan speed of my laptop.
