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 all. I 'm setting up a RH9 server to serve it's duties as a router-FTP-game server for our Wireless Network here in Patras, Greece.
It is an old 450MHz PIII slot A cpu-mobo. I want to be able to monitor every temprature that is available, through the OS, not the bios. What utilities are there? Then I could make the system shut down if temps get too high(or is there a more graceful way to handle that situation?).
lm_sensors to see the temp. There are several frontends for it, gkrellm is most popular/nice probably. For shutting the pc down not really sure. I just have that set in the bios. One idea that comes to my head although probably dumb is to set up a script that runs sensors every few minutes, greps the results and if temp is to high to issue a halt -n.
No, lm_sensors isn't a module, its just a command-line programm. The frontend I use is gkrellm. If you want to measure the temp, you need i2c support as well. i2c is most likely a kernel module and needs to be configured. However it's likely that redhat already has set it up for you - I can't tell. I never used Redhat
I managed to recompile-install everything, no errors except the ...harmless ones. I run the script that is supposed to detect the sensors on my HW. It tries to detect my i810(i think), but it just stops responding, and if don't let it detect the 810, it goes on with the graphics card detection. But then it hangs again...
look around for running sensors on your specific board...i know for example my uncles mobo which is a k7s5a he has to insert something different in the rc.* files rather than what sensors-detect tells him to insert after configuring...so there may be also a specific issue with yourself...and he also has to edit the sensors.conf file to rename a couple things as the output is wrong according to sensors where temp1 is cpu but it outputs that its something else etc, etc....so you may have a specific issue with your board.....so it may be worth while to search google and see if you come up with something.
and i just noticed how you said it detected the i810 (you think) but as i said above in my uncles case what it detected was wrong and we did a search and found the proper sensor it really uses.
