cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THM0/temperature

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



Cheers,

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

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 ...


Cheers,
Tink
