Default Samsung Q45 laptop and fan and LCD brightness


as mentioned in subject, i have a samsung Q45 laptop with a debian
testing installed on it. Everything goes very well except the control of
fan an LCD brightness.

Even if my question deals with fan and LCD brightness, the information i
can give you concern only fan problem (the most annoying thing):

As a matter of fact, my sensors results are:
Adapter: Virtual device
temp1: +33.0C (crit = +100.0C)
temp2: +33.0C (crit = +100.0C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 0: +13.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)

Adapter: ISA adapter
Core 1: +23.0C (high = +100.0C, crit = +100.0C)

But, the problem is that my fan is still running whereas acpitool -f
indicates that Fan is off! And as you can see, temperature is not very
high and fan is still running... I could accept this noise but it sucks
my battery.

My kernel is: 2.6.26-1-686

Perhaps does anyone know which module i have to modprobe?

I have tried lm-sensors which advised me to charge coretemp module.

$ lsmod| grep coretemp
coretemp 5504 0

Any idea to solve such difficulty?

Thank you for help.
