laptop running hot
I have a Toshiba Satellite L305D series that is running Slackware63-13.1/multilib. It runs very hot, to the point that I had to prop it up and put a fan towards the bottom of it just to get Alien Bob's VLC package to install and build without shutting down.
I have the powernow-k8, cpufreq-ondemand, and cpufreq-conservative modules loaded, and it's still running about 170 degrees F. When I had Ubuntu 10.04 64bit dual booting, it averaged about 140 degrees F. It seems to remain at this temp regardless of what I have running, unless Im building something that's CPU-heavy.
Any ideas? anyone in a similar boat?
