Install goes smooth, both slack and redhat picks up my nic and hardware but the fan is loud. I have done searches on google and had no luck finding a solution. I have read some about the fan, something to do with hibernation or something (could never find a direct fix for it about linux). Any suggestions or helpful urls would be great. The model of the computer is PCV-RX550. The pc is new and XP works fine on it, just hoping I can use Linux on it cause Windows is boring.
