Smile Small Simple System Monitor


Hi everyone,

Iím using Fedora Core 2 on a server that i am currently setting up. I would like a small program that will report the current system temperatures on the desktop. I have had a good look around and can find loads for Windows, the ones i find for Linux im not sure how good they are or if they will even work with Fedora!

What are your recommendations guys?

Cheers,
Tim

Try Gkrellm http://www.gkrellm.net/

If you use KDE, you can get something called SuperKaramba. Superkaramba is an engine that lets you put various toys right onto your desktop. A lot of Superkaramba programs are system monitors.

I believe Gkrellm can be configured to show only the temperature, but you'll have to check that.
