What does /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/something/temperature tell you?

Do you have ACPI enabled?

Start simple, please. Baby steps.

"something" = THRM (only), and after executing
Code:
watch /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
I get "permission denied".
ACPI is enabled, at least in BIOS.

Code:
sudo cat /proc/acpi/thermal_zone/THRM/temperature
The fact you have an ACPI tree in /proc means ACPI is up.

I get
Code:
temperature:             40 C
, which tells me exactly nothing, as I was looking forward to CPU0,1,2,3 temperatures

Okay, mail us the computer, and we'll have it figured out in, say, a few months.



(We have no clue what is going on. Sorry!)

The software you want is lm-sensors. It doesn't require ACPI, but instead probes the sensor chips on the CPU(s) and motherboard. We use it a lot. There is a HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors Tutorials & Tips thread on the Ubuntu forums.
