hardware software

i was looking for a good program that shows cpu temp, fan speeds, and other hardware information. I noticed from other peoples' screenshot that has a sidebar that shows all this information. I want to be able to download it for myself thanks in advance

There's a program called "GKrellM" which displays some info about your system like cpu load, disk space, machine name, bandwith usage, etc.

You can get it at

gdesklets and superkaramba also do some of this, and have some stylish transparent themes etc..

slackware 10 is worth the upgrade, if you like staying up to date. There's a lot of security fixes and stuff.
It's very stable, also. I've been staying on current for a while and have had 0 problems.
