 Does anyone know of a motherboard monitor utility that I can use on

xmbmon or lmmon should work, and if your laptop has good enough acpi
support, sysctl hw.acpi.thermal might give you temp info as well.

 It's been generating a *lot* of heat lately and I want to try and
 monitor the CPU temperature.

try mbmon

Thanks... but!

No Hardware Monitor found!!
InitMBInfo: Unknown error: 0

lmmon detects '255C' and so I'm guessing it's not reading values correctly.

[EMAIL PROTECTED] /home/adam]# sysctl !$
sysctl hw.acpi.thermal
hw.acpi.thermal.min_runtime: 0
hw.acpi.thermal.polling_rate: 10
hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.temperature: 3240
hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.active: 0
hw.acpi.thermal.tz0.thermal_flags: 0

hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._CRT: 3680
hw.acpi.thermal.tz0._ACx: 3130 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1

I'm not sure that any of these values are of much help!  Anyone have any
further ideas? :)

I believe all the thermal units are tenths of a degree Kelvin.  So 3240
= 324K = 51C = 123F.  Definitely running hot :)  The _XXX entries are
read-only trigger points; see the acpi_thermal manpage for more info.
