Temperature gauge for Haiku

Temperatures are rising all over the Northern hemisphere, and those Haiku users without air-conditioning risk boiling their machines.

Is there a little app that I have overlooked which will display the system temperature?

Seems as haiku dotn have HPET or any sensor as i know :3 but it should not to be a hard thing i suppose(i am not a dev)

I think PowerStatus displays the battery temperature, yes?

But most modern machines have an auto-shutoff on high temperature anyway.

Are you saying we can’t check IsComputerOnFire in Haiku?

The Powerstatus does not return battery or any other temperature, sadly.

There is something called Palladin which might do so if you have the right sort of MoBo, but I have not looked into it in detail as I don’t know whether I have such a motherboard, or whether Palladin does in fact work.

Palladin is a devel environment, it have nothing to do with temperatures, afaik.

On any modern hardware you would get the info through acpi, so it should once again be “only” a matter of writing an acpi temperature sensor driver


something as psensors?

No, psensors is just a gui to lm-sensor and hddtemp.

the only driver of this kind is the “LM78 motherboard sensor haiku32”? is not any other there?
