Question Newbie - What is this utility called?


Hi all!

I've finally made the transition from Windows XP/2000 to Mandrake Linux 9.1. So far I've been very impressed.

I was just having a look at some of the screenshots on the Mandrake website and I have seen this utility running quite a lot:

It looks totally cool, could somebody please let me know what it's called and where I can get it from? Also if anyone can recommend any good sites for linux desktop customisation tips, please let me know.

Cheers guys

If you want to use gkrellm work, you need to install lm_sensors. The lm_sensors get the data from the mobo and pass it on to Gkrellm. Nice prog though. Mine is always running.

Later

Post Oooooops

Did you run 'sensors-detect'? If not go to a root term and run it. When it asks you a question just type in which ever one is in caps. There will also be a couple of things in there that it will tell you to copy to other files. That will make it load during the boot. I usually copy and paste to a kwrite document and do that when I get done with the detect thing.

Since each mobo is a bit different you need to really watch where it tells you to copy the lines. They are short and right at the end of sensors-detect. Mine has two for one file and one for another, can't remember what they were now.

Post back what you get.
