CPU Temp


Running Suse 10.2. Is there a good package to read CPU temps? Thanks.

From a terminal session, you can use:

acpi -tf to get the temp in farenheit.

GKrellm has a temp probe that works pretty good.

Thanks a lot for the tip. I have ksensors already working, but look what I found:

macho@linux-wwtz:~> acpi -tf
No support for device type: thermal
macho@linux-wwtz:~>

I have /proc/acpi/thermal_zone, but thermal_zone is empty???

I'll checkout GKrellm though. Thanks.

I downloaded GKrellm with Yast. It's in Guru. I have it working and it's pretty fancy! Thanks a lot.
