Question CPU Temp, Fan Speed, etc


Running Slack 10.2
Kernel 2.6.14.6
ACPI compiled into kernel
K8T Neo-FIS2R Motherboard

My /proc/acpi/thermal_zone and /proc/acpi/fan folders are empty.

I'd really like to be able to monitor my AMD 64 3200+ temp and my fan speeds.

Why are these folders empty?

Here is all the ACPI msgs I get during a reboot:

Code:

If anyone could help me be able to monitor my CPU temp I would really appreciate it!

Thanks,

I suggest you look into lm_sensors. There is likely some docs specifically for slack... here are some generic ones

cheers

thanks dude. I quickly took a look at the supported chipsets and my VIA is listed in there. I'll need to do some reading tomorrow.

There are a few of these threads popping up these days... I had the same problems with my old motherboard. lm_sensors will probably work but it's a bastard to set up. Have a look at xmbmon, it's a nice little X app that displays data and it builds a CLI binary with a ton of options making it super easy to parse the output and do whatever you like with it

I have via k8t890 and via vt8237r chipsets,which one is the correct one for lm_lensors?
None of them are listed unfortunately,for future reference, when they do support it, which is the right one to use?
