Hey, I am working on building a new comp at the moment and that has inspired me to do a bit more daring things with the comp i am currently running on. My current project is to overclock the CPU as much as i can. Anyways, this is a bit hard to do safely without a CPU speed and temperature monitoring app/prog. So i set out to find one but all the ones i found were for windows, so if you could just paste a link to where i could download a monitor for linux (slackware 10) that'd be great.
well... it didn't work as i had hoped, is it entirely neccesary to get lm_sensors before gkrellm? Cause i have had gkrellm for several months, and as always the sensors tab shows everything to be locked and the info tab within the sensors tab says that no sensors were detected. *shrugs* Pehaps my crappy MB is not compatible to do these things? i know that i don't have the... eh... aicp thing. Should i get it? I'd rather not mess with the kernel if i don't have to.
gkrellm will display the sensor readings that lm-sensors gives it. So, yes, you will need lm_sensors installed to get all the info you want from gkrellm. Don't worry, I'm fairly new to Linux too and was paranoid of going through the lm_sensors installation. I found that once you enter the default answers during the lm_sensors install (just keep pressing ENTER to all the questions), then everything will work out just fine.
Good luck, and please come back if you have any more questions.
