the 9cjs came with a 5.25 bay that provides card slots, front usb and firewire, and an LCD POST code display. it's called the CBOX3, and it connects to the motherboard in various places.
in windows, you can use chaintech's proprietary software to get the LCD display to show the cpu's current temperature.
knowing that linux has a directory for every system device in /dev,
a) how would i determine which directory represents the POST code display, and
b) what could i do to get that device to display the cpu temp?
thank you for looking at my post, i hope the question isn't too moronic...
is there some problem with posting replies with pictures? i posted a picture of the CBOX3, but it didn't show...
anyway -- i'll have to check lspci and see... do you know what it would look like if lspci finds it? the screen is a simple 2-digit lcd, nothing special about it. it connects directly to the mobo... you can see pics of it (front & back) here
