I'm using Slacko 5.6 frugal on a pen drive.

I am quite concerned about my legacy laptop's temperature and RAM. Is there any tool to install to the dock/task bar to monitor these stats?

Then you should probably give Macpup derivate a spin . The enlightenment wm has a temperature applet in the shelf .

Then there is xosview app to monitor everything , but that needs the temperature enabled in the config .

Some use acpi for temperature and some need to load extra drivers manually ie it87.ko or coretemp.ko that do not have the temp vals in /proc but /sys .

There is a program usually installed with Puppies called *Hardinfo* which has a temp gauge report. In Puppy-528, I find the app at: Menu/System/System Status and Config/HardInfo hardware information. Note: not all machines will have a temp gauge that registers.

See if CPUtemp works on your machine:

This is a nice widget. But the temperature indicator has nothing to show though CPU indicator shows normally. Where can I configure the temperature indicator?

Could you tell me how I can check whether the driver has been loaded or not?

Code:
lsmod

in the console .

100% sure that it is not loaded automatically,

since the loading mechanism lacks some extra checks :

cat /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/modalias
platform:coretemp

in regards there is a

whatever:

before the driver's name .
