http://ubuntuforums.org – Seems this problem has appeared before? Here & here. Just installed Unity 11.10 on my wife's HP Mini 1030NR - upgrading from Linux Mint 9. Everything is OK, except that the fan is running full tilt when the netbook is idle. This might also be a bug? Does anyone know if there's a solution to this? (There didn't seem to be a problem in Live mode.) Hoping to find one. If not, I'm open to suggestions as to other distros (or versions of Ubuntu) I can try? (Hardware)
