http://forums.opensuse.org – Hi, I just got this laptop, HP dm3 with AMD Neo X2 L335 cpu. This is a fairy new cpu, and not much is being said about it working under linux. However one thing i notice is the temperature of both cores under Windows 7 is around 30 C at idle. But in openSUSE 11.2 (and SystemRescueCD) /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ report the temperature to be around 60 C. Throttling is working. Fans doesn't seems to work harder than under Windows also. And the laptop is not much hotter as well. What is going on here? Should I worry? (Distributions)
