Has anyone ever managed to get lm_sensors working on a G3 iMac, purely for the CPU temperature?

Many thanks!

I think it might report the CPU temperature in /proc/cpuinfo, but I'm not positive for G3's if this is the case.

On G3s the temperature sensors are not very accurate at all, so virtually noone uses it nowadays. Newer G4s are a lot better.

That's true, but I'm not sure what you were expecting to read with lm_sensors?
