I've finally managed to set up my two ATI Radeon 6950 video cards in my machine, but the cards can get quite hot. Based on the arrangement of my apartment, I want to be able to SSH into the machine an execute a command to find out the temperature. What I have tried so far is this...
export DISPLAY=:0.0 sudo aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature
However, when I do that via SSH, I get the following error:
ERROR - X needs to be running to perform ATI Overdrive(TM) commands
If I turn on X forwarding when I remote into the machine, then it just seems to affect my local machine instead of the remote machine.
Am I doing this correctly? Is there a better way to monitor my video card's temperature?
