The lmsensors package in etch seems to work perfectly w/o any downloads.
Actually, I checked it and it seems it has been updated with the mods
from tyan already. So, as debian users, you're in luck as usual!
Adapter: ISA adapter
temp1: +33°C <-- cpu1
temp2: +33°C <-- cpu2
fan1: 1393 RPM <-- cpu1 fan
fan2: 1348 RPM
fan3: 1357 RPM
fan4: 1428 RPM <-- cpu2 fan
This is with 265s "basicall" idle. The CPUs (temp1 and 2) get as high
as 43C when running for a while at 100%. [This is the ideal machine
for compiling 800 java files several times a day ~:^) ]
If you're seeing anything higher, then you need to triple check your
fans and heat sink mounting. They're probably not working right.
