Looking for a program


Recommended Posts

Can't seem to find anything that will read my CPU temps. Was getting shutdowns due to high temps 'cause I couldn't check them. (Needed to install a watercooler anyway) I've googled for a prog that would work in mint. The ones I've tried show system temps and even GPU temps, but not the cpu. I can check it in bios, but it isn't under load at that time.


Any suggestions? Checked Gigabyte website but found nothing.


Thanks. :)

can you run sensors-detect in a terminal (answer yes to everything.) and post the output in a code box here also do the same for sensors.


meanwhile i'll try and see if i can find a definite answer to if that cpu is supported or not.

To load everything that is needed, add this to /etc/modules:
#----cut here----
# Chip drivers
#----cut here----
If you have some drivers built into your kernel, the list above will
contain too many modules. Skip the appropriate ones!

Do you want to add these lines automatically to /etc/modules? (yes/NO)y

Monitoring programs won't work until the needed modules are
loaded. You may want to run 'service kmod start'
to load them.

Unloading i2c-dev... OK
Unloading cpuid... OK

Sensors is showing more this time then it ever did before. But at the bottom it mentions INTEL> ???

Just seen this the other day on Facebook page called Open Source For You



I'm not completely certain about this program and the site it leads to loads up rather slow and doesn't seem to have a whole lot of info about it.

Sounds like it's an open source clone of CPU-z called i-Nex

I asked how one would go about installing/configuring and the responses I got back were saying you don't. Makes no sense to me.. maybe someone here has heard of it?

Well Justin, the simple solution to finding about about the program would be to go to their website not some facebook page or effysomething.




Once there you find that there are installers for opensuse, fedora, and the pretend/wanna be something other then linux distro..........




I installed it on my computer and while it does provide a lot of information it doesn't tell me much more than my system already does. But it does install.

Unc, I installed inex on my fx8120 and unless I did something wrong(kinda hard when you copy/paste in term), I'm not getting temp readings, but it shows pretty much everything else about the system.

i'd guess the program just shows info in a nice easy layout that it gets from other places/programs so i'd install sensors then run sensors-detect answering yes to everything, then reboot and start the inex program again and if i'm correct then i think you'll find it will now show the temp readings your missing.
