At work, we use HP Thin Clients with a Debian distribution on top. We sometimes buy new hardware and when faced with discontinued models, we of course have to find new ones. Last time we decided on the HP t5550 Thin Client, which were to prove a bit of a challenge when we had to upgrade our Debian installation with a newer kernel.
Since I’m using Linux, this means using the “lm-sensors” program, which in my experience never seems to work “out of the box” without a lot of Google searching and configuration tweaking.
After about 30 to 60 minutes of use, my system completely locked up.
All I could do to get the system back up, was perform a hard reboot.
