k10temp - riddle me this
Got a crappy (but cheap!) ASRock A770DE+ motherboard to replace a long-suffering MSI board in my 24x7x365 rosetta@home machine. Alas, the MSI gave up the ghost.
So, I put my machine back together with this board. On it I stick the old Phenom II x4 920 (AM2+) and the old 8GB of DDR2 RAM (Yes, I wanted to reuse everything.) There's also an ATI HD 4350 on it to fool the motherboard (which has no on board video) into thinking that I really give a crap -- but I run it headless anyway.
I decided to reinstall Oneiric just because.
So when I ran sensors-detect, I got all the expected info -- except for k10temp.
Hmmm. lsmod shows it.
Just for grins, I add k10temp manually to /etc/modules. After reboot, still nothing.
But if if do
sudo rmmod k10temp && sudo modprobe k10temp force=1
Well, I guess that's sort of getting somewhere. But I know my CPU shouldn't be freezing water at sea level. And that doesn't persist through the next reboot and running sensors again finds k10temp AWOL again.
Adapter: PCI adapter
temp1: +0.0°C (high = +70.0°C)
lsmod -- check
/etc/modules -- check
sudo rmmod k10temp && sudo modprobe k10temp force=1 ... well, kinda.
Anyone have any ideas besides re-rolling the module from source? That would be plain aggravating on a clean install.
Edit: It just occured to me that I could add the force=1 parameter on startup to see what happens
