I followed the instructions in the first post above and it worked.
The 'sensors-applet' was in synaptic.
BTW I tried to reinstall sensors applet today, after removal, and re-enabled k10temp .... but nothing works!
I've had a look at my etc/modules file and there is no reference to the
k10 driver only it87, so before i do the install at the top of this thread
is there some way to see if i have that driver somewhere on this system.
And if it's there how to get it to work, or do i just follow those
Well i followed the instructions (to the letter), at the start of this
thread and i still only have one extra temp showing now in Gkrellm. So does
someone know whats wrong and how to fix it. I mean to get all six cores to
show, it does under winblows!
Looks like nobody knows or they don't care to fix this, i'm sure i'm not
the only one to have this problem, not good for a new O.S.
Sorry about the slow response, haven't been on Ubuntu Forums for a week or so.
To be honest, I copied the steps from a website only making minor changes and don't actually know much about temperature monitoring myself. It may be that six-core CPUs are quite rare (I'd only ever heard of four-cores before now) and that there is simply no support for it yet. Are you sure you have six temperature monitors? I have a quad-core CPU, but all four cores share a single temperature monitor.
I would try Googling "X6 1055T k10temp", but the first result is this page.
Hi Penguin Guy.
Pretty sure they all do, app's that i have seen for windows like speed fan,
hardware monitor & AMD O.D. shows 6 core temps.
Then people with the new 12 core Opteron 6174 will have a big problem!
This is part of the answer i got on the AMD forums when i asked about the
core temp reading, so it looks like it's a software problem, wonder if
someone can/will fix it?
Quote/ There are no actual sensors on each core. The core temps are
calculated based on frequency/voltage/load/temp.
For this reason I and many only go based on the single cpu (not core). /End
There you go - Ubuntu shows one temperature because there is only one thermometer, the other temperatures are guessed. I'd call this a design choice rather than a bug. Is there a reason you want separate core temperatures?Originally Posted by slaveondope
Hi Penguin Guy.
Well i guess i'm just fussy if Gkrellm can show the load on six cores or
more, then why not show the temps for all cores if possible. I'm sure i'm
not the only one that wants to see that happen.
Just needs someone with the programming knowledge and will to do it.
