In the output below, where should I look for the CPU temperature? The

Is there some other program to check the CPU temperature?

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

This is what I use to check temps if I feel like my sensors widget is not

Thanks, Mark, but

$ cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
cat: /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature: No such file or directory


Hmm. You don't have ACPI on your system at all? YOu might want to poke around /proc, that metric may be located in a slightly different location than mine, but on all my systems (laptops, desktop, Fedora or Gentoo) it's in that location.
