    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!

      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
