I'm getting into the swing of things (I think) and have been able to do an article every other day. It really, really helps to write and schedule them. For some reason, this takes the publication pressure off - meaning I actually keep to my schedule better.


That's just one way to check. There are other ways, but that's one of 'em. As always, feedback is truly appreciated - and often results in article changes.

I am not sure what the difference is with regards to scheduling things. For whatever reason, it just makes it easier to write. I highly recommend folks do this. WordPress will happily give you a subdomain and your own blog.

It's also available in 20.04 Ubuntu's (and, obviously, official flavors) default repositories. It's in the Universe repository, according to apt-policy.

It appears to be a pretty decent tool. I'd never played with it before. It has quite a few details, beyond just CPU temp. It may be worthy of its own article, thanks!

My results were:

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0: +68.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 0: +67.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +65.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

Core 0: +67.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +65.0°C (high = +84.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Somewhere around 150° F. That's not too bad. It's a little warm, but not critical (for most CPUs). As it's just two cores, I'll assume it's an older CPU?

I'm actually using an older i5 right now and the results are:

Code:
sensors -f
acpitz-acpi-0
Adapter: ACPI interface
temp1:        +82.0°F  (crit = +222.8°F)
temp2:        +85.6°F  (crit = +222.8°F)

coretemp-isa-0000
Adapter: ISA adapter
Package id 0:  +86.0°F  (high = +185.0°F, crit = +221.0°F)
Core 0:        +86.0°F  (high = +185.0°F, crit = +221.0°F)
Core 1:        +82.4°F  (high = +185.0°F, crit = +221.0°F)
Core 2:        +78.8°F  (high = +185.0°F, crit = +221.0°F)
Core 3:        +84.2°F  (high = +185.0°F, crit = +221.0°F)

I like psensor and xsensors and use both.


My temps.
Intel Core2 Duo E7400

Core 0: +31.0°C (high = +76.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)
Core 1: +47.0°C (high = +76.0°C, crit = +100.0°C)

One of the reasons I like Linux is that there are so many different ways to accomplish your goals. There's always something new to learn.

in days gone past when you did a self build and put thermal paste between back of CPU and heat sink , high temp could be sign of failing paste. What does it tell you thee days ?
