I have fedora 16 installed on a Acer Aspire S3. My problem is the fan is continuously running. This is also a problem on Ubuntu, which has a fix coming out in next version.Does anyone know of any Fedora workarounds or a possible fix date?

To get the fan problem fixed you must update your Fedora, since it's fixed in kernel 3.2.

sudo yum update

Reboot to boot with the last kernel, and to check the version running

uname -r
