I had system freezes with my HP Pavilion when using Linux (at the moment I use Debian, Ubuntu showed the same behavior). HP support forum suggests that the error is related to temperature control. So I would like to log the temperature output with
aspi -t while waiting for the next freeze.
My first try was:
$ acpi -t > temperaturelog.txt $ watch -n 1 acpi -t >> temperaturelog.txt
However, this leads to only two lines, the second command leads to a cryptic second line. It might be because I used Ctrl+C to end the logging. What did I do wrong? How would you improve this?
