Yep. I was able to change the Firebird fonts after going through the Forums. My issue was that I was chaging the userChrome.css inside $(HOME)/.mozilla directory. Actually I should have done the changes inside $(HOME)/.phoenix directory. Now it works. Thanks..

I didn't have any success on the lm_sensors till now. As you told I have installed the required rpm from Mandrake CD-3. Installation was scuccessful. Though I got confused with the exact name of the installed executbale. I hope it is 'sensors*' in /usr/bin dreictory. But the date of this executable doesn't reflect that.
Any idea here?

After that I built gkrellm. Tried to execute it. But simply hangs. Went through the conf file. Looks like it is waiting for some input from the netwok. I didn't connect to network at this time. I Will try editing the conf file today.
Any other thoughts here?

So, the browser itself is renamed to Firebird already, but the config directory is still named '.phoenix' instead of '.firebird'? Odd...
However I'm glad that one way or another you have one problem less now.

From the "scary" INSTALL file (again):
Quote:
There is a special scanning program installed called sensors-detect. It
will scan all available I2C and SMBus adapters for all known devices,
and give you a list of what modules you need to insert. It is written in
Perl, and you will need at least Perl 5.004 to run it succesfully.

If `sensors' returns some error message about not being able to load
libsensors, you have to add the directory in which it is installed
(by default /usr/local/lib) to /etc/ld.so.conf and run `ldconfig'.

You can use the installed sensors program to get a report of all detected
sensor devices. There is also a manual page for this program. Calling
`sensors -s' will set the limits and other configuration settings
specified in /etc/sensors.conf. Again, read the manual pages for more
information.
I don't know were this program is installed on your system, however you always can:

1. Run 'updatedb' and then use 'locate sensors'.
2. Use the search tool 'find /usr -t f -n "sensors"' (or something similar).
3. Open your *.rpm file somehow ('mc' becomes in mind) and look at it structure.
4. Something even smarter that I'm not aware of.

If you start GKrellM from the command line (i.e. in terminal window) like this: gkrellm &, does it produce some error messages or something? Are you sure that all required libraries are installed and on their right places?
If still doesn't work, well, better remove it and try to search your CDs for available pre-built package. I'm not 100% sure, but it should be there (2-nd or 3-rd CD). If not:

Yeah.. It was '.phoenix' instead of '.firebird'!. That is why the problem came.

I did run 'sensors-detect' yesterday. It asked me whether you need patch the kernel with cerain modules and when I said 'yes' to this it started giving strange kind of errors. I didn't have time to investigate it yesterday probably I will do it today.

All the rmp packages will get installed to /usr/bin or /usr/lib by default , I guess. So I didn't run ldconfig yesterday. My /usr/local deson't contain any of the sensor files.


I executed 'gkrellm' from command line only. It simply hangs. As I told earlier gkrell expects network to be connected for working, I guess. I will try to remove this from the 'gkrell.cong' file today to see what happens.

I will try the other things that you have suggested. Will keep you informed.

By the way why are you not usiing Linux any more :-): ?

Today I ran sensors-detect again. Said "yes" to most of the options that I was scared to do yesterday. Got failed messages for many step. But in the end it detected the chip in the mother board with a confidence level of 8. And also a file / rc.d/init.d/lm_sensors got created saying that this will be used during boot time. So rebboted the machine and executed gkrellmd from command line. This produced the following error.
gkrellmd couldn't bind to any socket
gkrellmd socket() failed: Address already in use

After this I have the installed the earlier version of gkrellmd from my Mandrake 9.1 CD. This also produced the same error even as root.

While rebooting I have observed that the gkrellmd is also getting executed.
If I do a ps -eaf | grep gkrell soon after reboot I can see two gkrellmd processes with -d option.

Rings any bell?

Now the topic of this thread is getting changed!. Probably I will start a new thread?

Probably following information will solve your problems, so hopefully new thread won't be necessary

1. Type 'sensors' on the command line. If you're able to see your CPU voltages, FAN rotations per minute and so on, then lm_sensors package is up and running. Don't forget that on each reboot 'sensors -s' must be executed, so if this command is not already in your init scripts make sure to put it in.
2. Do not run 'gkrellmd' but only 'gkrellm' instead (no 'd' at the end). You're trying to execute the GKrellM's daemon instead of the program itself:
Quote:
GKrellM Features
================
* Data can be collected from a gkrellmd server running on a remote machine.

Client/Server
=============
When gkrellm connects to a gkrellmd server all builtin monitors collect
their data from the server. However, the gkrellm process is running
on the local machine, so any enabled plugins will run in the local
context (Flynn is an example exception to this since it derives its data
from the builtin CPU monitor). Also, any command launching will run
commands on the local machine.
With gkrellmd (server part) running on your machine you'll be able to see desired information about this machine (i.e. on which gkrellmd is running) remotely on some other machine via gkrellm running on it, but to see information about yours you must run gkrellm (client part). [Sounds stupidů Sorry about my English but this is not my native language. Hope you'll be able to understand].

As for this:

In short: lack of applications that are of vital importance for me (MicroStation/InRoads, AutoCAD Land Development Desktop, etc.), some annoying (for me that is) things (but I don't want to start a new holly war here, so I'll keep my mouth shut ), lack of enough free disk space (my HDD is only 13GB in size, without hope to become any larger soon) and so on.

Sensors is working properly for me, I think. When I typed sensors it gave lot of information about volatages and similar stuff.

'sensors -s' is not getting executed automatically, I guess. I will put it in my init scripts.

I was not able to find any 'gkrellm' executable after installation!. Infact I was looking for that. The only thing that got installed is 'gkrelld'. I will check whether I need to install some other gkrellm package for this. Or probably I need to build the source with different option?... Any thoughts here?

Sorry to know that experts are moving out of Linux -):

Well, I realized now that I have installed only the daemon part of gkrellm. Downloaded the client part also now. Will try it in the evening...
