    dell 5150 overheats with last xserver-xorg update

    Overheating has been a problem in ubuntu on since dapper. Finally, Hardy seemed to have it under control. Then after this:
    Upgraded the following packages:
    xserver-xorg-core (2:1.4.1~git20080131-1ubuntu9) to 2:1.4.1~git20080131-1ubuntu9.2
    the cpu temperature shot from 52 C to 70 C - and nothing was running (not even Firefox, which usually gets things heated up). I downgraded and the temp fell back into the 50s. So I've just locked the xserver-xorg-core 2:1.4.1~git20080131-1ubuntu9 version, and my laptop is happy.

    Currently running an (other than xorg) updated Hardy system with the following apt sources:
    deb hardy main restricted
    deb hardy-updates main restricted
    deb hardy universe
    deb hardy-updates universe
    deb hardy multiverse
    deb hardy-updates multiverse
    deb hardy-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    deb hardy partner
    deb hardy-security main restricted
    My system: lshw listing attached.

    Hope this helps someone else with an old laptop ...
