Re: LMDE true rolling release?

I think your issue with the fan is related to the fact that lmde doesn't come with out of the box hardware drivers for your GPU like Ubuntu does. I had this too, and once I got the proper nvidia drivers the fans stopped spinning like crazy and the temperature (from acpi -t) dropped significantly.
