Can the HDD change already cause such a thing? Besides that: I have not
configured anything myself concerning ACPI. Anyone any idea what/where/how
to check? I DO think that the fan is working. I can hear it (and it does not
sound ill) and it also shows in

$ sysctl dev.acpi_ibm

Now not being touched at all for an hour and just idling around. Besides it
did work under 6.2 without problems, would be a crazy coincident if right
with the update the fan broke.

Any idea anyone? :S
