Is there a shell command for CPU temp
 
My laptop sometimes feels very hot and i would like to check the CPU temp is possible?

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM0/temperature

works for me ... may differ with the kernel and/or hardware.

thanks just a little adjustment n all is good :) i have used the cat /proc/filesystems command before the only thing i understand about the proc is it holds process information or am i wrong what would you define the proc as?

Tinkster 03-06-2005 06:29 PM

I'd define /proc as "the users window into the kernels
values and activities" :)

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/ is empty what to do? see my HW below

Depends on how Fudora is set-up, I suppose...

If the box can do both APM and ACPI, and FC
checks for APM first there won't be anything in
ACPI...

Find out what options your kernel was compiled
with ...
