CPU Temp in /sys/bus/acpi/devices/LNXTHERM:00/thermal_zone

Hi All,

When I cat /sys/bus/acpi/devices/LNXTHERM:00/thermal_zone/temp it says 84000. How do I interpret this in degrees C or F?

What distribution are you using? You can install lmsensors, and run sensors-detect and get your temperatures from that.
