laptop cooling fan doesnt like me
i have a dell inspiron 4000 laptop, on which im running redhat linux 8. everything is running properly, but the cooling fan toward the back doesnt seem to want to kick on. i know its not broken, or shouldnt be, because it worked up until i installed linux. is it just a freak coincidence? or is there some way to fix this? (i thought i read something similar to this a while ago, where they talked about a power management feature you have to configure, but i couldnt find the thread.. so i may just be delusional, with a case of bad luck, but i dunno..)
any help would be awesome!
