i have the same problem with a hp pavilion..athlon mobile 2400+ etc..
mdk 10.1 comes with apic options compiled into the kernel,so i can not shut them down on lilo prompt..this means i can only boot with acpi=off(or ht don't rememmber,but on doesn't work
)...this means 30min and then laptop shuts down because of overheating.i know i have to recompile the kernel,i intended to do it non the less, but laptop shuts down during compile
i find this a bit strange cause i compiled before on this machine without acpi and it never made this kind of problems(i tried with suse 8.2,knoppix hdd install)!
so does anybody have maybe a compiled kernel that i could use until i can compile mine or do i have to get a fan
