SuSE overheating Dell laptop...
I have a Dell Inspiron 8500 that I have configured to dual boot Win XP and SuSE 10. Everything works fine when running Windows, but when running SuSE (KDE) I hear the fan come on within a few minutes, then get faster and then within about 10 minutes the computer locks up.
For the record, it's fine if I leave it idle. It just doing anything that heats things up. (I'm talking about web browsing using either Firefox or Konqueror, because that's pretty much all I do on it.)
Once it locks up, I can SSH into it from another machine and kill the X process, which indicates it's eating about 99% of the processor. So, perhaps this is a KDE thing?
I'm a Linux newbie, so I have no idea where to start tracking this down.
