Well, it *should* work with a standard Debian kernel and applicable

wooledg:~$ /sbin/modinfo coretemp

Your "No such device" error sounds like it probed for hardware and didn't
find any.  If the module itself were missing from the file system, then
I would have expected "FATAL: Module coretemp not found in directory ...".

It says "Intel" in the description.  Are you using an Intel CPU?

​I now realise that coretemp only works with Intel chips not AMD ones....


I will look up module names that work for the FX 8350 and see of I can find any that are not listed in lsmod and try installing them
with modprobe.
