Hey. I'm a newbie to linux and I choosed to use fedora with kde desktop. It's actually a completely different experience and of-source awesome. However, I recently installed nvidia driver using this tutorial, and after that, laptop's fan is working with maximum speed all the time. Have you any idea what should I do? Thanks in advance.

Edit your question and add to it inxi -Gsxxx and sensors output.

please enter "top" to a bash console. check if something is running with 100% cpu load OR MORE. IF so, please paste the name of the program here.

btw.. a few days ago, someone asked the opposite question, his problem was that his fans ran to slow. He got an answere with a tool to control it from bash. Could help you too if we can't find a process running at 100% cpu power.
