Default Re: 169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100

I'm running (K)Ubuntu 8.04 amd64. I usually just use the drivers from the repos unless something is wrong. In this case, the fan is wrong. I didn't have this problem in (X)Ubuntu 7.10, so I found the driver version from that release and installed it and the fan is OK again. I could change the fan speed with nvclock, but it's obviously much better for it to change itself. It seems like it's not changing Performance Level out of maximum (is this the same as PowerMizer?).

$ sudo nvclock -i
