hddtemp is a simple small app to monitor your hard disk temperature. It works by accessing the SMART capability of modern disks.
Here’s how to install it.
Download and compile from source.
#tar -jxvf hddtemp-0.3-beta15.tar.bz2
#/dev/sda: WDC WD2500JS-75NCB3 : 45°C

I was lucky enough to get a free 50GB box.net account. 50GB is alot!. However, the catch, individual files can’t exceed 100mb each. lol
I mainly use my box.net to hold eBooks for later access on my Laptop and Android devices.
There is no free client for Linux so I use WebDAV instead. It’s slower but it works.
Start by installing davfs2.
# sudo yum install davfs2Create your Box.net directory
# mkdir ~/Box.netCreate the davfs2 config directory. It’s in your home dir so it’s not system wide.
# mkdir ~/.davfs2Disable locking. Causes issues sometimes.
# cd ~/.davfs2
# echo "use_locks 0" > davfs2.conf
Create a secret file to hold your box.net login details. Make sure to “chmod 600 the file”
# echo "https://www.box.net/dav [you box.net login] [your box.net password]" > secrets
# chmod 600 secrets
Backup and update your /etc/fstab file to include your box.net directory.
# cp /etc/fstab /etc/fstab.ori
# echo "https://www.box.net/dav /home/danesh/Box.net davfs rw,user,noauto 0 0" >> /etc/fstab
Mount and you should be able to list ~/Box.net
# mount ~/Box.net
# ls -l ~/Box.net
This is the hard way to do this. I will post a simpler method using Nautilus in a future post.
I love the new Android Roboto font family and it looks good on my Fedora 16 install. Here’s how you can get it into your Fedora 16.
