Inclusion of hddtemp in ISO releases

I noticed on both KDE Multimedia and Dr460nized non-gaming (don't know about the others) that hddtemp is not part of them but sensors is.

It would be interesting to have hddtemp already packaged and running as a daemon/service.
It would be even more interesting if the default Conky config would include it, along with the other temp readings is has now.

I agree it's not that complicated to setup but I think it's logical and consistent with what is already included in the releases. In the end (sorry I don't understand why "releases. In" shows as URL?), Garuda is already steps ahead of other distros, but every reason to stay ahead could be good. :grinning:

What's your thinking about this potential request?

nOPE :wink:

What you like is for hundred other bloat.

Correct, here you go :slight_smile:

releases.de . in
release .de / release . de
Interesting :smiley:

.... releases. In......

Yup!

Unneeded too often these days. Sensors can handle the whole job for many things (like nvme drives! :grin:) On an older machine I still have it ${exec}'ing - but it could so easily be called bloat for others...

I've never seen sensors (lm_sensors) show SSD temp, but that's fine, there is bloat in every distro, everyone is different in their needs.

Well - now you can!

It depends on your setup I guess. :grin:

I guess that only applies to NVMes, but standard 2.5" SSDs don't show in sensors. I have a rack and swap/remove/reinstall disks, that doesn't work with NVMes. :frowning:
Interesting to see AMDGPUs show up, though! :slight_smile: Maybe inboard GPU and not external card. Anyway like I said that's fine as it is. :slight_smile:

You must allow hddtemp work as sudo (not recommended) IIRC I use it in Mint ??? many many years ago.

But maybe @freebird54 , the conky hacker, know a solution. :slight_smile:

I am able to run hddtemp without sudo, too bad I'm not on my awesome Garuda machine right now, but you have to chmod +s or chown +s, can't recall... I can look that up tonight and post back as future reference if anyone uses hddtemp and wants info.

Normally just $hhdtemp in Conky should work, as it's an integrated command in Conky.

One method is to chmod +s /bin/hddtemp - but it is a bit ugly! Better to use the internal one if needed and working! Most of sensors is available from hwmon in conky as well - if you can find it and the right arguments...

Sometimes it just seems simpler to ${exec} something and get on with it! :grin:

Absolutely!
