Feedback on the Lenovo Thinkpad T410 about fan control

Asked by Mikko Majander on 2012-05-02

The Lenovo T410 will have fan running at the highest speed even without other load than desktop environment. This can be fixed by using Thinkfan, but by default the fan-control doesn't seem to work. Is there other, more official, fix for this?

I forgot to mention that the Ubuntu is 64bit version. And if someone finds this useful, here is the output of lspci -v
