In updating my kernel from 2.6.6 to 2.6.8, and my acpi patches to =
20040816-26-stable-release version, my Acer Aspire 1705SMi is doing what =
it did the first time I tried to configure ACPI about 8 months ago, =
namely, thinking the temperature is 255 degrees C and shutting down =
instantly, whenever I load the thermal module.
Might a recent change have done this, or is it something I patched =
manually to fix and forgot about, before overwriting it with the latest =
The machine functions okay without loading thermal, and I seem to have =
the DSDT working in initrd.
