Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

hi altogether !
i'm using ubuntu (lucid linux) and got severe temperature
problems. if i am, supposedly, editing a file, the system
stops me, and wants me to stop editing ... until it shuts down.
i have downloaded the xsensors-application and this gives me
core-temperatures of up to 60 degrees ! well, i live in the
netherlands and i would like to know how i can let the machine
know that i am fine with temperatures, say, ut to 75 degrees ?
thank you very much

It would be helpful if you would say us what system you are actually running. Is it a desktop or a laptop? Which CPU?
In general, just ignoring a suddenly higher CPU temperature is never a good idea, it would be better to find the cause for that and correct it.
This depends. If it's your OS which is shutting down the machine, then you probably have to configure whatever daemon is watching over your temperatures. Can't be more concrete since I've never used any *buntu system for more than five minutes. Probably someone else can give more concrete help with that.
If it's your BIOS which is shutting down the mainboard then you should look into your BIOS setup, the limits can usually be changed there.
I see that you have rated my post as helpful, marked this thread as solved, but not came up with what your actually solution was. Please post your solution here, so that other members can benefit from it.
sorry, tobiSGD !
i followed the way frankbell told : i am running a last SUN-representative,
a very late AMD-machine with the opteron-processor, a desktop. i removed
every dustparticle i could, and the core-temperature is around ~ 51 degrees.
thanks for the advice, frank !
