Default Re: 169.07 Ubuntu 7.10 Fan at %100

Whats up nVidia? It's been almost 7 months now, you have released 2 new versions of the driver and the bug is still there. I know linux probably isn't a high priority and i understand that. But this is a joke. I used to recommend linux-interrested people to get a nvidia card, but these days i'm starting to wonder if thats really a good advice at all.

Anyway, i really hope someone has an idea on how to fix this, any help will be greatly appriciated.

EDIT: This issue is apparently fixed in 173.14.09 - Awesome. Still need to check if the fan speed is being changed when putting some load on the GPU.
