    Did that happen to your OpenSUSE as well?

    I'm currently using netbook Intel graphics, so this may affect me. When's the next kernel going to be released?

    i seen over heating on running virtual box on open suse apart form that it run on 47-49 on my desktop which is quite ok i get same on fedora 13 default as well as far as ubuntu on desktop i cannot say much i hardly use it


    but i recommend that please keep checking your sensors time to time it better also here at my place weather is pretty hot as well about 32-35 C sometimes more so it also one of the cause :)

    GOOD NEW TO ALL users sorry yes although kernel might be over heating

    but that might not be the case because my adopter get F@#% UP as well it seems battery also got shot its showing 3 V out of 10.8 what else......god knows .......i check later ........



    thanks for support guys

    yes pretty sad news its my brother favorite laptop old but work nicely but no worries i soon try to repaired it.

    but one thing it teach me lesson even its not the cause that i should check kernel sensors and thermal sensors .................specially after installing/updating new kernels by giving it youtube.......installing software .....giving it little ..stress mode and keep a eye on my thermal sensors :cool:

    sorry to hear that i thought its just linux which is the only HOT one out there :D


    by the way i dont use windows at all just linux on my laptop working perfectly fine since 5 years until few days ago :D


    any ways good news in i change my motherboard and battery cost me approx 300$ :D

    but worst part is i get only 3 month guarantee on motherboard where else on battery 1 year so i guess its time to try less hot distro of linux :D

    Recent laptops and desktop systems shut off before overheating, though.
    My experience is that KDE runs hotter than Gnome. And flash is brutal!

    yes i used to think the same until i start using open suse 11.4 which give me same as fedora 47 C its the only distro which give me less heat on idle mode as well normal after fedora 13 and not much fluctuation unless

    i run some hard like virtual box.......etc where i tested scientific linux centOS they produce lot of heat 50 default to 65 sometimes without nvidia support on live cd mode

    also i found SL and centOS pretty fast compare to fedora guess it does over clocking

    speed = high thermal


    Nvidia drops core thermal lot in desktops as they take cpu gui load .......guess with nvidia support SL give less thermal heat on sensors i pretty sure

    but in laptop i guess we need to keep and eye on thermal when using linux

    Based on fan activity in my laptop: Mandriva is also unfriendly, somewhere I read an article indicating that Mandriva's kernel team does not belief in "power optimization"
