I have bought a Compal CL56 laptop recently and I have had some problems with ACPI and kernel 2.6.9 (wrong battery info/state readings, no fan and temperature values). So I tried omnibook module and now it works fine.
I post thiis to offer my help to the developers if they need dmi or dsdt data to include this laptop in their supported models.
And btw, thanks a lot for your work!
Yes, please send me the DSDT and DMI info. Thanks.
Just to complete the info in my previous post. Fan works fine, i. e., it switches on only when temperature rises and with variable speed, but /proc/omnibook/fan always says that it's switched on.
I think that omnibook module is not controlling the fan and neither fan acpi module because I don't load it.
I don't know for sure, but I supose that it's controlled by the hardware without using the OS

I also have a CL56 with the omnibook working. Don't know if you ever got the info needed so I just post it.
