cpu temperature

Hi.... I want to view my cpu's temperature without restarting the whole system... I must use it in a server and the restart should be avoided.. . Any good suggestion??

One way which works for me: Get lm-sensors (your distribution should have a package for it) and enable I2C in the kernel. Then run, as root, "sensors-detect". It should load the required modules now, and you can use "sensors" or various other tools to see the temperature.

lm-sensors is no longer needed if you use 2.6 kernel as it's in the kernel
