Suggestion: if you don't find the temperature sensors... only pop up the dialog box once, then quit.

I had to force-quit it because it kept bringing up the dialog box as soon as I closed it, and I couldn't close the main window with the dialog box up.

Maybe you started download at same time i updated the file on the ftp server. So the link can,t work until i uploaded the file.
The link works.
If someone get this error message , try downloading a bit later (10 minutes).

Um.

that wasn't the problem.

The download didn't fail.

The software popped up a dialog box saying I had the wrong processor.

I couldn't exit the software cleanly because every time I closed the dialog box so I could quit the program, it popped it up again.

Added an Version which only shows the temp, not the MHZ.
Usefull for people getting the MHZ error, but temp works. Working on MHZ value.
Added / updated readme.

Same downloadlink, second tool is within the .sitx.

It does display the temperature in the window and Dock properly, however a looping MHz error saying it's missing CPU Director continually pops up until I manually click on and quickly quit the program.

I have a 900MHz, 750 powerlogix card in my Pimso, and CPU Director is installed.

HI, iam back.
Try to start terminal.
In terminal type:
sysctl hw.busfrequency

Whats the result ?

My G3 beige show this:
Andreas:~ ami$ sysctl hw.busfrequency
hw.busfrequency: 66820000 (meens 66,66 MHZ Bus)
Andreas:~ ami$

The programm needs busfrequenzy because some PL MACS have 66 some 100 (g3 b/w).

I use an older 50 mhz PCI Mac and have the same problem. My results from terminal are:

hw.busfrequency: 50000000
hw.PowerLogixHID1: 1610612736

I am not using a Powerlogix board but CPU Director works fine with my XLR8 card.

The MHZ only work with real Powerlogix 750FX/GX.

" I use an older 50 mhz PCI Mac and have the same problem. My results from terminal are:

hw.busfrequency: 50000000
hw.PowerLogixHID1: 1610612736"

The second value means (there are some bits to test) Software PLL : disabled. My Tool cant get the PLL Bits of the 750FX if there is no 750FX CPU.
MHZ will only work, if you also can switch MHZ (PLL) by the CPU Director.
MHZ fixed systems (non G3 750FX/GX) should use my second tool, see readme in downloadfile.
