    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Hi all!!

    I had the same problem... than I tried to swap order in which modules were loaded and now it seems ok even if I get values only from the via module!

    This is my output: (some values are a bit strange)

    Code:
    via686a-isa-6000
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    CPU core:  +3.10 V  (min =  +3.07 V, max =  +3.00 V)   ALARM
    +2.5V:     +0.06 V  (min =  +3.08 V, max =  +3.10 V)   ALARM
    I/O:       +3.33 V  (min =  +4.01 V, max =  +3.82 V)   ALARM
    +5V:       +3.27 V  (min =  +3.08 V, max =  +6.44 V)   
    +12V:      +7.93 V  (min = +11.77 V, max = +13.68 V)   ALARM
    CPU Fan:     0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 2)          
    P/S Fan:     0 RPM  (min =    0 RPM, div = 2)          
    SYS Temp:  +23.9C  (high =  +146C, hyst =  +146C)   
    CPU Temp:  +23.9C  (high =  +141C, hyst =  +146C)   
    SBr Temp:  +24.9C  (high =   +20C, hyst =   +34C)   ALARM
    and thi is the order in which i loaded the modules:

    Code:
    modprobe via686a
    modprobe eeprom 
    modprobe i2c-viapro
    modprobe i2c-isa

    The values that are display are calculate from the raw sensor data and sometime the formula needs to be corrected. See "/etc/sensors.conf".

    Finaly I'v got it, here's my output:
    $ sensors
    lm90-i2c-0-4c
    Adapter: SMBus Via Pro adapter at 5000
    M/B Temp: +46C (low = +0C, high = +70C)
    CPU Temp: +50.6C (low = +0.0C, high = +70.0C)
    M/B Crit: +95C (hyst = +85C)
    CPU Crit: +95C (hyst = +85C)

    Thank you Emperor! Step-by-step instructions that 1) even I could follow and 2) gave a successful outcome on the first try.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    well this doesnt work on my nforce2 chipset

    it told me this:

    Code:
    To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to
    /etc/modules:
    
    #----cut here----
    # I2C adapter drivers
    i2c-nforce2
    i2c-nforce2
    i2c-isa
    # I2C chip drivers
    eeprom
    w83627hf
    #----cut here----
    
    Then, run /etc/init.d/module-init-tools
    
    
    To make the sensors modules behave correctly, add these lines to
    /etc/modprobe.d/local and run update-modules:
    
    #----cut here----
    # I2C module options
    alias char-major-89 i2c-dev
    #----cut here----
    so I did it, but I get to this point:

    Code:
    $ sudo modprobe w83627hf
    FATAL: Error inserting w83627hf (/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-5-k7/kernel/drivers/i2c/chips/w83627hf.ko): No such device
    what can I do? I'm a warty user.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    It doesn't work on my nforce chipset either -- but I have NEVER been able to get lm-sensors to work with my board in over two years of trying. I think it's an nforce-specific problem.
    Ideas matter.

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    I got it! Just googling and reading the whole output of sensors-detect, I was able to install lm-sensors in my nforce2 chipset! Here's how I did it:

    You can see here something fishy:
    Code:
    Probing for `Winbond W83627HF'
      Trying address 0x0290... Success!
        (confidence 8, driver `w83781d')
    Anyway, I found out that w83627hf is not the right module needed for the nforce2 chipset! The right one is the driver suggested below, the w83781d.

    So, here's the correct output needed:
    Code:
    # I2C adapter drivers
    i2c-nforce2
    i2c-nforce2
    i2c-isa
    # I2C chip drivers
    eeprom
    w83781d
    copy that to /etc/modules

    then issue these commands:
    Code:
    $ sudo modprobe i2c-isa
    $ sudo modprobe i2c-nforce2
    $ sudo modprobe w83781d
    $ sudo modprobe eeprom
    $ sudo /etc/init.d/module-init-tools
    $ sudo update-modules
    Then just run this:
    Code:
    $ sensors
    And it should give you something like this:
    Code:
    w83627hf-isa-0290
    Adapter: ISA adapter
    VCore 1:   +1.47 V  (min =  +1.14 V, max =  +1.55 V)

    +5V:       +5.05 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +0.00 V)       ALARM
    +12V:     +12.22 V  (min =  +0.00 V, max =  +0.00 V)       ALARM
    -12V:     -12.53 V  (min = -14.91 V, max = -14.91 V)       ALARM

    fan3:        0 RPM  (min = 3245 RPM, div = 4)              ALARM
    temp1:       +34C  (high =    +0C, hyst =    +0C)   sensor = thermistor   ALARM
    temp2:     +36.5C  (high =   +53C, hyst =   +48C)   sensor = thermistor 
    temp3:     +37.0C  (high =   +53C, hyst =   +48C)   sensor = thermistor 
    vid:      +1.350 V
    alarms:
    beep_enable:
              Sound alarm disabled
    
    eeprom-i2c-0-51
    Adapter: SMBus nForce2 adapter at 5000
    Memory type:            DDR SDRAM DIMM
    Memory size (MB):       256
    Although I'm not sure if that eeprom is right in there.. and all those "alarm" messages too

    sudo: unable to exec ./mkdev.sh: No such file or directory
    The chmod is 755.

    Hm, I don't see why he doesn't find the file, it is there! In the Desktop directory!
    Even in another directory I have the same error

    Re: HOW TO: Install and configure lm-sensors

    Thanks, RastaMahata. Your instructions worked perfectly for me. I can now properly monitor my box, which is designed for silence and sits away in a drawer. I can't hear it, can't see it, and have had until now no input about what's going on inside of it. Now I know.

    Cheers.
