Hello everybody!  :)
I installed a 2.4.21 kernel + cpufreq-2.4.21-2 (downloaded
from + acpi-20030619-2.4.21
(downloaded from on an Acer Aspire 1302XV
(AMD Mobile Athlon XP 1600+). I manually fixed the vid-fid bug in
powernow-k7.c (as reminded by Carl Thompson in a recent post), activated
the ACPI-related configuration options, compiled and installed.

Here comes the weird!

When I boot all seems right. The CPU is almost 100% idle and
$ cat /proc/cpufreq
          minimum CPU frequency  -  maximum CPU frequency  -  policy
CPU  0       500000 kHz ( 35 %)  -    1400000 kHz (100 %)  - 
performance$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
temperature:              60 C
And this seems to be able to go on (with temperature slowly

Then I disconnect the laptop from the electrical network: so I run on
When I go back on AC power, the battery starts charging (as reported by
the LED and by ACPI). And the temperature goes up towards 80 degrees
Celsius; the back fan wakes up thus pushing the temperature down again
to 69 degrees Celsius; then the fan rests and the temperature goes up
again. This thermal cycle goes on and on, even if the CPU is almost
totally idle.

A simple reboot stops this behaviour and, after a while, I get
$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
temperature:              57 C

The question is: what's wrong? What did I messed up with?

You're compiling a program and, all of a sudden, boom!
