Description Peter Barker 2006-04-11 01:29:08 UTC
Description of problem:
Fan speed control does not work unless read /proc/acpi/Thermal_zone/TZ1/
System may hang for a few seconds after issuing command to read this file. acpid 
usage may go to 99% for a few minutes.
I think fan comes on at lower temperatures in Windows XP on this PC.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Kernel 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 for x86_64 
acpid 1.0.4-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run a CPU-intensive program
2. Wait for CPU to heat up (above 60 deg?)
3. cat /proc/acpi/therm*/*/temperature - fan will start
4. Wait for CPU to cool down (to 50 deg)
5. cat /proc/acpi/therm*/*/temperature - fan will stop
Actual results:
Fan stops/starts only when access file

Expected results:
Should stop/start without file access.

Additional info:
Have noticed the default FC5 x86_64 installation DVD installs both i386 and 
x86_64 versions of many packages (eg hal-0.5.7-3

Have attached a decompiled DSDT, lspci output, and messages log

Looks like two identical bugs were created by mistake.  Closing the duplicate.
