[Bug 871983] Re: 1002:9593 [HP EliteBook 8730w] Radeon Mobility HD 3670 gets very hot, battery usage consequently low (45 minutes)


Johannes Anwander, your problem will never be fixed in Oneiric as it's no longer supported. However, if you are having a problem in a supported release, and so your hardware and problem may be tracked, please file a new report with Ubuntu by executing the following in a terminal while booted into a Ubuntu repository kernel (not a mainline one) via:
ubuntu-bug linux

For more on this, please read the official Ubuntu documentation:
Ubuntu Bug Control and Ubuntu Bug Squad: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bugs/BestPractices#X.2BAC8-Reporting.Focus_on_One_Issue
Ubuntu Kernel Team: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/KernelTeamBugPolicies#Filing_Kernel_Bug_reports
Ubuntu Community: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ReportingBugs#Bug_reporting_etiquette

When opening up the new report, please feel free to subscribe me to it.

Thank you for your understanding.
