[Pkg-acpi-devel] Bug#619549: thinkpad_acpi does not control fans

Package: acpi
Version: 1.5-2
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze

The PC would shutdown saying "Critical temperature reached (128 C)" when doing
CPU intensive work. The fans were not turning on at all.

The installer should create the file /etc/modprobe.d/thinkpad_acpi.conf and
added options thinkpad_acpi fan_control=1 to it. This seems to fix the issue.
