Monitoring and Hardware watchdog on Debian


Hi guys,
i'm using Debian Squeeze on my machine.http://www.advantech.com/products/PC...5B4F6A1AA.aspx

i want to implement some sort of monitoring routines. i know that there is a command (watchdog) that do some software and if it could some hardware monitoring and do something when something is failed. now i want to use watchdog when the temperature of my system is more than something. i change the /etc/watchdog.conf and set max-temperature = 45 but nothnig happen when the temperature of the goes above 45.
BTW when i run acpi -V i get these messages :

Code:
No support for device type: power_supply
No support for device type: power_supply
cooling 0: Processor 0 of 0
cooling 0: Processor 0 of 0
any idea?
thanks.

Since the output reports
Code:
No support for device type
perhaps you need non-free firmware?
Just a guess on my part.
