LXer: DesktopBSD's brief, shining moment

Published at LXer:

I've been shuttling CDs in and out of my Gateway Solo 1450 laptop, just seeing what works and how well. I've also been fiddling around with the BIOS settings, trying to get the CPU fan under control in both Linux and the various BSDs. A select few Linux kernels do this automatically ... most don't. I can control the fan with a cron job, but I've never, ever been able to do this with any version of BSD. Until today. For some reason, I ran DesktopBSD 1.6 as a live CD, and the fan fell silent, turning on at various intervals, then off.
