Morning rvs1st

Oddly enough, I just saw this error myself a few days ago after an attempt to boot from the new F7 liveCD. It was on my HP ze4427 laptop. After the F7 boot-up tanked at finding the root filesystem, I ejected the CD, and shut down the laptop. Then I rebooted into the same kernel of FC6 I've been using with no problems for a month or so.

Presto! "Critical temperature has been reached. Shutting down," right after the kernel loaded! I kept getting this error after 5-6 boot attempts, even after blowing all the cooling fans and grills clean.

Luckily, I had never dumped the old i586 kernel Anaconda stuck me with when I loaded FC6. The temperature sensors and CPU scaling, therefore fan controls were borked in that kernel, so I tired it, and it booted without issue. And since then, the newer i686 FC6 kernel will also boot again normally too.

The scaling feature works as it should, and the fan speed varies like it should now too. So I have no explanation, only this information to offer in hopes someone else knows what the problem might be. However, I for dang sure am keeping that old snake-egg i586 kernel around now!
