    Linux temperature monitoring and hardware info


    I'm going to be installing Ubuntu 8.04 desktop and I need a program, preferably with a GUI, that provides temperature monitoring of all known sensors on my motherboard.

    I've heard about lm_sensors, but is there a GUI for it?

    Also, is there a hardware info program for Linux that is similar to cpu-z? I'm looking for something that will provide thorough, human readable information. At the least:
    -cpu multiplier
    -fsb
    -memory speed
    -memory timings

    I've heard of HardwareLiSter, but I looked through a few screenshots and I'm not sure if it has what I want. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thanks.

    take a look at this....

    Conky - Home

    You will need to configure it , but it will display just about anything you want.

    Post your .conkyrc files w/ screenshots - Ubuntu Forums
