Dear all,

when used with Linux, the fan of the Latitude E5400 is working all the
time and even an explicit request to the OS to turn it off does not
work. More precisely one can hear the fan stopping and restarting.
This has been reported as a Linux Kernel bug a long time ago:
Can anybody here please have a look to the discussion that took place
there and help ?

Many thanks in advance,
