Find Linux CPU Temperature

The easiest way to get a CPU temperature readout from Linux is by looking at an ACPI function called temperature:

cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature

You could also try sensors-detect and then sensors, but I had some trouble detecting the correct modules on 8 year old hardware.
