I should have double checked on the laptop - fan and thermal are
build in, and not modules, so you do not load them. But if you are
not getting /proc/acpi/fan and /proc/acpi/thermal_zone but you are
getting the /proc/acpi directory, then there is something wrong. If
you are getting the directories, but they are empty, then the values
can not be accessed through acpi.
For example, I have /proc/acpi/fan/FAN0/state on my laptop, but I
only have /proc/acpi/fan on my desktop.
