Aero AIO: cpu/mem plugin mod is a mod of the cpu/memory plugin for aero aio. The hardware information is gathered via backends. You can easily write a python backend for your hardware.

Look at the files cpumemv2_backend.py, cpumemv2_default.py and cpumemv2_i8k.py to learn how to write backends.

Here are some key features of "Aero AIO cpu mem plugin mod":

default backend that supports CPU temeratures via /proc/acpi/thermal_zone and hard disk temperatures via hddtemp. You can start hddtemp by (as root)
hddtemp -d /dev/hda
Replace hda with the hard disk you want monitored.
ibmacpi backend (for IBM laptops). Thanks to Frank Fiene. Supports CPU, GPU, hdd, fan and pci data, via the ibm acpi kernel module. Boy those IBM laptops have a lot of sensors!
i8k backend (for Dell laptops). Supports cpu temp and fan speeds via the i8k kernel module.
The backends are cascaded. The code automatically looks through all backends for support of each feature. the final feature set is the union of all backends
If an update temporarily fails (this tends to happen with hddtemp), it is indicated on the theme by the : in front of the sensor name becoming an _

Requirements:

Aero AIO 0.9.1

Usage:

If your hardware isn't supported write a backend and send it to me
