    I hope it doesn't get too epic... I have a feeling it will though. There's a lot of hairy stuff I haven't worked through yet. GPU idles around 57-62C with powermizer enabled. Still waiting to get a decent battery estimate.

    Edit: Did a seriously heavy edit to the first post and this post to clean it all up -- it's starting to look like a howto guide now :)

    HD runs around 34C, here's the rest:
    Code:

    temp1:      +33.0C                                   
    temp2:      +33.0C                                   
    temp3:      +31.5C                                   
    temp4:      +34.8C                                   
    temp5:      +54.5C                                 
    temp7:      +48.5C                                                                 
    temp14:      +53.8C                                   
    temp15:      +44.8C                                                             
    temp19:      +31.0C

    That's pretty complicated for me but it's a really good guide. Is it OK if I link this guide on another forum?

    Yeah absolutely please link to it :)

    Any feedback is appreciated, this howto is just getting started.

    Edit: Added some more info to the guide. Still more to come.

    Edit 2: Updated howto for 2.6.31. I had posted a youtube vid last night but it is outdated with this update so I deleted it. I'll upload a new one when I have some time.

    Edit 3: Updated howto with new NVIDIA drivers and some new info about backlight brightness. Added kernel config (not cut down yet, pretty bloated but safe).

    Edit 4: Fixed: I said to select 2.6.30 in the boot menu when I had updated the guide for .31.1. Also changed 2.6.31 to 2.6.31.1 in the wireless section to match.

    Edit 5: Added rc kernel section and updated the wireless section to make sure b43 isn't conflicting with the broadcom sta module (b43 locked up my system once -- don't want it to happen to anyone else). Also made some minor corrections and linked to a post on Ubuntu forums concerning ALSA. Note that 2.6.32-rc1 is the same as rc2 because of the Makefile, it will keep the rc1 source location but uname -r will say rc2. Thank Linus for that one ;)

    Edit 6: Update for 2.6.31.3 and 2.6.32-rc4.

    I run Debian so I couldn't tell ya... I did a quick search and found nothing pertaining to the MBP5,5 on Arch Linux forums... maybe someone else can comment.
