With Debian 10 is there a device /sys? that would allow me to get the CPU temperature?

Thanks

the on board temp sensor is not accurate
you will need a off CPU sensor if you want accuracy

The "Random Noise" Temperature sensor was only enabled in 3.8.x based
kernel's.. Due to silicon bugs, TI oped to not push it mainline..

Ok, thanks for the clarification.  I was hoping to avoid hanging off hardware
because I already have a relay cape and that kind of limits my access. Is
there a cape with this functionality that would still allow me to use the relay
cape?

RCN - Any ideas on my bwbasic-3.2a upgrade. Thanks.

Sure, first you'll need to apply to become a maintainer:
