comp monitoring - GKrellM

Hey everyone,

I would like to set up a sort of system monitor that maybe could use the sensors on the motherboard to monitor temperature, etc. I have browsed and found that one of the more commonly used applications is GKrellM. Can anyone tell me how to configure this to work, or maybe refer me to another program that would do the same thing? I have an MSI K7N2G motherboard with an AMD Athlon 3000+ processor. Thanks.

you can get Gkrellm via yum. If you had the default install of Fedora you probably have Gkrellm already installed.

to check openup a terminal and type

$ gkrellm

Also you can do a

$ locate gkrellm
to know its exact location. However, if you dont have Gkrellm then you can get it via YUM.

# yum update
# yum install gkrellm
